Why Chesterfield County Fire and EMS? 

“The fire department specifically is a very proactive fire department that goes above and beyond other departments in terms of getting proper training, proper gear, good equipment and being the best department we could possibly be.” – Assistant Fire Marshal Shedd

“I chose Chesterfield County Fire and EMS because the values of this department are parallel with my personal values.” – Firefighter II Lewis

“I had always been physically fit and it seemed like a job that would have meaning. I am a Colonel in the Virginia Air National Guard which I have done simultaneously with my fire department career.” Captain Kahlson
