The Culpeper County Volunteer Fire & Rescue Association (CCVFRA) assists in the coordination and provision of emergency services between Culpeper County Virginia and its eight member companies:

The CCVFRA provides essential services for the member companies, including (but certainly not limited to)

  • coordinating training of emergency services personnel,
  • assisting in the development of uniform dispatch protocols
  • developing standard operating guidelines for approval by the member companies
  • receiving budget allocations from the county and distributing them to its member companies
  • providing a forum where all the member companies can work together to create consistent delivery of emergency services to the citizens

We may wear many different uniforms, but our goal is the same – to provide the citizens of Culpeper County with high quality fire suppression and emergency medical services through dedicated, trained volunteers.


Quick Facts

  • As of July 1, 2020, the volunteer fire and rescue system in Culpeper has 363 active volunteers and 201 support members.
  • To replace the volunteers with a career staff that could adequately cover the town and county would cost the taxpayers an additional $20-$25 million annually for salaries and benefits.
  • A conservative estimate of the current replacement value of volunteer assets alone would be $43 million dollars ($16.1 million in equipment and $26.9 million in structures).
  • To upgrade the building infrastructure to host career staff in the firehouses would cost the county another 20 million dollars.
