We are an all-volunteer fire and EMS first response company (Station 2) located in Ruckersville, Virginia. Ruckersville is a Census-designated place in Greene County, centered around the intersection of VA Route 33 (Spotswood Trail) and VA Route 29 (Seminole Trail).
Yes, we are fundamentally a community-service organization and no member is compensated monetarily for their time, whether responding to calls, attending training, or maintaining our apparatus and facilities.
What is your response area?
Our "first-due" area is the eastern, most commercially and residentially dense, part of Greene County. It is bounded by Orange County to the east, Madison County to the north, Albemarle County to the south, and approximately Fredericksburg Road (Route 609) and Swift Run Road (Route 623) to the west. However, if the call warrants, we respond throughout Greene County and to mutual aid requests from the Barboursville Volunteer Fire Company and the Madison County Volunteer Fire Company.
There are three other emergency services organizations in Greene County who respond with us as necessary: the Stanardsville Volunteer Fire Department (Station 1), the Dyke Volunteer Fire Department (Station 3), and the Greene County Rescue Squad (Station 4, located in Stanardsville).
Do you respond to EMS (Emergency Medical Services) calls?
Yes, if the call warrants. We do not transport patients to local hospitals, however, this is the responsibility of the Greene County Rescue Squad.
