Greater Springfield Volunteer Fire Department is a member of the Fairfax County Fire & Rescue Department . The department is a combined system made up of career Firefighters and Paramedics whom staff the station 24 x 7 x 365 and volunteers who provide supplemental staffing.
GSVFD Volunteers provide additional staffing on Engines, Trucks & Medic Units. In addition to providing additional staffing, volunteer members routinely place into service additional reserve Engines, Ambulances, Brush Units, Utility Plows and Canteen/Rehab Units.
The first Fire House was a converted gas station in 1966.

- Prevent fires and medical emergencies from occurring through safety education;
