Hello and welcome to the Amelia County Volunteer Fire Department. We are a 100% volunteer department with 125 volunteers manning five stations throughout the county. The volunteers respond to fire & EMS emergencies throughout the county and also assist our neighbors with mutual aid when needed. We are a rural community with approximately 14,000 citizens and are located 30 miles west of the city of Richmond, VA. Amelia County borders Chesterfield County to the east and Powhatan County to the north.
Our members participate in a variety of training in and out of the county to stay on top of the ever changing environments around us. U.S. Highway 360 runs through the county from east to west. This highway is heavily traveled 24 hours a day, seven days a week by all types of vehicles. There are also a large number of heavy trucks that haul all of the goods available on the market today. In 2009 the volunteers responded to 1143 calls between the five fire stations. These calls range from vehicle accidents, structural fires, farm machinery accidents, mine rescues and a wide variety of EMS calls.
We welcome you to visit our county and to stop by one of our five fire stations at any time.
