Lake of the Woods Fire and Rescue is a young fire company created with the mission of “protection and preservation of both life and property by maintaining a high degree of efficiency in both firefighting and first aid.” Founded as a resort community, the area has grown into a bedroom community north of Fredericksburg.
The department serves the various residents, businesses, houses of worship and academic institutions located in the Locust Grove, Germanna and Wilderness areas of Eastern Orange County along Route 3 and Route 20.
Growing from eight members in the beginning to 24/7 staffing today, with the assistance of county career firefighters, Lake of the Woods firefighters operate an Engine Company, Truck Company, Rescue/HazMat Company, as well as basic and advanced EMS.
As this quiet community continues to grow and emergency responses rise, the department is actively recruiting for the following positions:
- Cadet Program
- Associate/Auxiliary Members
We are a department made up of husbands, wives, parents, brothers, sisters, students, veterans, neighbors, families, and friends. We look forward to continuing to serve our neighbors and our Orange County community.
