Providing the citizens of our county and those who may pass through with the most proficient delivery of fire protection, emergency medical and disaster related services that can be accomplished by prudently using all resources available to us with special focus on the most valuable resource: our people.
Caroline County Fire-Rescue and Emergency Management is a combination volunteer and career fire and rescue department. We are responsible for the protection of 97 miles of primary roadways in Caroline County including Interstate 95, US 1, AND US 301. CCFR also helps protect a major petroleum pipeline and primary Virginia Railway lines for Amtrak and CSX corporations, which carry millions of gallons of petroleum and hazardous chemicals each year. Our Emergency Management program supports operations within the North Anna Nuclear Power Plant’s emergency protective zone, which requires extensive training for radiological emergencies including field monitoring and sheltering. The Department also proudly offers mutual aid support to the Fort Walker military base, which covers some 77,000 acres within Caroline County.
The Department’s six fire stations and two rescue stations respond to approximately 8,000 emergency calls per year. CCFR operates a fleet of 55 emergency vehicles and provides EMS transports to approximately 2,300 patients a year to hospitals in both the Fredericksburg and Richmond regions.
