Fire & EMS / Emergency Management
Dinwiddie County Fire & EMS is responsible for the delivery of fire services, emergency medical services, and the emergency / disaster management program. The division uses a combination of county personnel and more than 250 volunteers to deliver these services.

Fire services are provided by six volunteer fire companies that are located throughout the county. These companies provide fire suppression, fire prevention, public education, hazardous materials response, and rescue services. The county has two full-time administrative positions that support the fire companies operations.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) are provided from four of the county’s fire stations. The county utilizes 16 full time advanced life support providers, 20 part-time EMS providers and over 75 volunteer EMS providers to deliver both advanced and basic life support, first response, and transport services.

The emergency / disaster management program for the county is also handled by the Division of Fire & EMS. This program is primarily responsible to maintain the various emergency plans for the county including the Dinwiddie County Emergency Operations Plan, the Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Plan, and the Disaster Mitigation Plan. The emergency management program is also responsible for maintaining the County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and staffing the EOC and coordinating response during major events that affect the County.
