The County provides career staffing operating out of several of the volunteer stations along with available volunteer fire and EMS providers. This combination service is a cost-effective means to provide 24-hour a day coverage. The volunteer fire and rescue departments have a long history of valuable service to Louisa County and continue to provide equipment, facilities and personnel who are dedicated to the protection of life and property.
