Welcome to the official website of the Chesterfield Volunteer Fire Department.
We hope this resource serves to better inform the public of who we are and what we do. We hope you enjoy the site and thank you for visiting!
As you browse through our website and learn more about the Chesterfield Fire Department, you will discover that a lot has changed since the days of the horse drawn steamer and bucket brigades. A modern fire department is at the forefront of technology. The Chesterfield Department uses the most up to date and state of the art equipment and methods available.
There was a time when fire departments only responded to fires. But communities quickly learned of the firefighters’ bravery and willingness to help whenever and wherever they could. The roles of fire departments began changing. Today’s fire departments respond to almost every type of emergency situation. Although we will always be fire departments, a more descriptive name might be All Hazards Response Agencies. We stand ready regardless of your emergency – structure fires, wild fires, medical emergencies, ice and swift water rescues, hazardous material responses, vehicle extrication, etc.
Our personnel volunteer their time responding to emergencies and attending weekly trainings. They are expertly trained and continue to receive ongoing training to ensure new technologies are incorporated into our operations.
Our department is proud of the opportunity to serve our community, and we have set our goals high in order to provide the best fire and rescue service for the citizens of Chesterfield.
