About Us

Welcome to the website of the Yorkshire Volunteer Fire Department. The Yorkshire Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1948 and went into service in 1952. I.J. Breeden donated the land to the fire department, and the residents of Yorkshire built the original building on Centreville Rd. Our new station opened up in 2005 on Patton Lane and the original building was sold. Our first due area is approximately six square miles. Within this area, we serve approximately 2,800 homes, 10,000 residents, and 150 businesses. Our equipment consists of two engines, two ambulances, a heavy rescue, an attack, a disaster trailer, two utility vehicles, a light trailer, and two Chief's vehicles. We also house one of two mass casualty units belonging to the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue. We are 75 members strong, with approximately 35 Virginia State Certified Emergency Medical Technicians and 30 Virginia State Certified Firefighters. Many of our members are cross-trained as both EMT and Firefighter. The goal of the membership in training is to become either an EMT or Firefighter. We staff our equipment weeknights, all weekends, and holidays. The station is staffed during the day on weekdays by career staff provided by The Prince William Department of Fire and Rescue.
