The East Rivanna Volunteer Fire Company (ERVFC), founded in 1969, answers over 1,700 emergency calls each year. ERVFC serves Albemarle County and Louisa and Fluvanna Counties when called upon for mutual aid. The membership at ERVFC consists of a diverse group of volunteers providing Fire Suppression, BLS First Response, and Ground Transport BLS/ALS care in cooperation with Albemarle County Fire Rescue.

After joining, new members are assigned to a crew where they begin to learn the basic skills necessary to be an effective team member. Within the first year, more advanced training and certifications are provided at no cost to the member. New members can commit to as as little as 12 hours per month or as many hours as they want! We’d love for you to come check us out!
