Volunteer Opportunities

Caroline County Fire and Rescue is a combination department relying on the dedicated service of a small number of career firefighters and emergency medical personnel and a vast force of volunteers.  The spirit of volunteerism runs deep in Caroline with the first volunteer fire department being founded in 1947.  It can be simplest said that without a strong volunteer presence in the county these vital emergency services that the citizens rely on would not be consistently available.

We at Caroline County Fire and Rescue, are dedicated to continuing to grow our volunteer ranks by offering high quality training opportunities for citizens who want to become involved in the emergency medical or fire service.  In addition to quality training, we offer various incentives to county volunteers such as tuition reimbursement and a waiver of county sticker fees for a single vehicle. 

You will see our recruitment team out and about at most county events such as Ladysmith Day, Caroline County Agricultural Fair, and the Harvest Festival.  If you would like to learn to serve the community please seek us out or email mailto:joinccfr@co.caroline.va.us.
