A Message from Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue

“On Tuesday, Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad received at least 17 calls for service in an 8-hour period, about 4 times our normal call volume for that timeframe. Our staff was able to respond to 16 of the calls with Abingdon Fire and Rescue picking up the 17th. On another recent evening, we received 7 calls within an hour, transporting 8 patients. The handling of all these calls was a tremendous effort by our on-call staff as well as many others that stepped up to help. Our call volume is constantly increasing and we are in search of new volunteers to join our dedicated team of Firefighters and EMTs.
