The Spotsylvania Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1947 by a group of concerned citizens motivated by property loss following a storm. Over a period of 65 years, the Department grew from one Fire Company to a total of six, including Spotsylvania Courthouse, Brokenburg, Belmont, Partlow, Thornburg, and Four Mile Fork. SVFD has more than 120 active members.
A cadre of young individuals started full time firefighting careers after gaining valuable experience with the Spotsylvania Volunteer Fire Department. Senior line officers act as role models for younger members, and provide the motivation for personal training and improvement.
