Welcome to the King George County, Department of Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Services web page. The department is a combination volunteer and paid department comprised of many dedicated men and women.
We proudly serve the citizens with a variety of "all hazard" services including, but not limited to:
- Advanced life support
- Basic life support
- Emergency and disaster planning
- Fire prevention
- Fire suppression
- Hazardous materials mitigation
- Public education
- Vehicle rescue
- Water rescue
These services are provided 24 hours a day operating from three stations throughout the County. The department protects approximately 25,000 residents and covers 182 square miles. The department responds to over 3000 calls for service annually and operates using mutual-aid agreements with surrounding localities and the Naval Activity South Potomac - Dahlgren Naval Base to ensure the community is safe.
In October 2007, the new Company 1 Fire and Rescue Station was opened. This station houses Fire Administration, Operations, Fire Prevention, Training, and Emergency Management. The Company 1 station also houses the County's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and back-up 911 center.
In June of 2008, the King George County Board of Supervisors enacted an ordinance which combined all fire and rescue operations throughout the County. Today our team of dedicated men and women, both volunteer and paid staff work side-by-side at all three stations to ensure adequate fire and EMS protection. The members of our department continually strive to become more proficient and take various fire and EMS training programs to ensure their readiness. If you are interested in joining our team as a volunteer or as a paid firefighter or EMT, we encourage you to apply within.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at Fire Administration.
Thanks for Visiting!
