My name is Addie and I am the EMS Captain for the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company. As the head of our recruiting division, I personally understand the transformative power of joining our department, as I embarked on this journey when I was just 16 years old. Today, I stand as a testament to the incredible success and growth that volunteering here can bring. Warrenton gave me the discipline and foundation to become a paramedic, obtain a bachelors of science in biochemistry, and successfully apply to medical school.

By becoming a member, you’ll gain far more than just the satisfaction of making a difference in the lives of others. Our department takes immense pride in equipping our volunteers with essential life skills that transcend the boundaries of emergency services. From teamwork and leadership to problem-solving and effective communication, these skills will become an integral part of your personal and professional development, opening doors to success in any career path you choose.

We have an incredible fleet, state-of-the-art equipment, and progressive protocols. Notably, our department boasts the only Tower in the county. This remarkable piece of equipment runs county-wide and often into surrounding jurisdictions. Our commitment to staying at the forefront of technology ensures that you’ll constantly be working with the best resources available, enabling you to provide the highest standard of care to those in need.

As the busiest department in the county, we take immense pride in our ability to serve our community swiftly and effectively. You’ll experience the thrill of being at the front lines, making split-second decisions that save lives and protect property. The skills and experiences you gain with us will be unparalleled, forging lasting memories and friendships that will shape you for a lifetime.

So, if you’re ready to embrace an incredible opportunity to make a lasting impact, join us today. Together, we will discover a path filled with purpose, growth, and lasting camaraderie.
