We are offering individuals such as yourself the opportunity to join and experience one of today's most diverse and challenging professions by becoming a member of our volunteer team, to continue our tradition of volunteer emergency service to the Purcellville community and surrounding areas. Our community is continuing to grow, and so is the need for operational volunteer members to become professionally trained firefighter/EMTs and respond to emergency calls. PVFC also needs associate/administrative volunteer members to assist with all of our behind-the-scenes activities such as community outreach, recruitment and retention, social media, public education, fundraising, publicity, and clerical duties just to name a few.
