Manassas Volunteer Fire Company
All fire departments in the county need help. We’ve heard all the excuses. I can’t commit to (fill in the blank), I’m not always available, I’m too young/old, I don’t know anything about it. They are just excuses. We are all volunteers. We can when we can and we can’t when we can’t.
This is an incredible job you get paid for in ways that aren’t money. If you’ve ever thought about it, contact a volunteer fire department in your area. The hardest part, is walking through that station door the first time.
We all live in the communities we serve. How can you make a difference? Every fire department across the country needs help. Come down on a Monday evening, talk to our members, better yet, grab an application and make a difference!
Hope to see you there!!!!

: On Aug. 27, a officer was driving a marked police SUV when their cruiser impacted a pickup truck in area of the PW Pkwy & Wellington Rd just before 1:30 am. The officer was traveling on the PW Pkwy with a green signal to proceed through the intersection. The other driver ran their red signal on Wellington and entered the intersection, crossing in front of the officer’s vehicle. The officer, traveling at speed for the Parkway, had seconds to react and attempted to avoid the collision; however, the front of the cruiser impacted the back panel of the pickup. The impact and subsequent maneuvering post-crash caused the police SUV to overturn. The other driver was arrested for DUI. Thankfully only minor injuries were reported.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday June 29, 2023
Units were dispatched to the 7500 block of Bedford Road (Sudley) last evening for a townhouse fire reported by the occupants. Crews arrived on the scene with a working basement fire and all occupants evacuated from the home. The fire was located in the basement and quickly extinguished. The home did sustain significant damage. No injuries were reported. The Building Official declared the structure was unsafe to occupy, displacing six (6) adults and two (2) children. Red Cross was on the scene to assist. The Fire Marshal’s Office determined the fire originated in the basement utility room ignited by improper use of an extension cord.
This fire was discovered by occupants within the home; however, smoke detectors did activate shortly thereafter. The Fire Marshal’s Office would like to recommend residents check your smoke detectors on a monthly basis. Smoke detectors offer you the best protection to safely evacuate your home in the event of a fire.

With a heavy heart the Manassas Volunteer Fire Company regrets to announce that Past Chief and Life Member Tommy Dickins passed away earlier today, he was a valuable member of the MVFC for 44 years. Funeral arrangements will provided when they become available. Tommy is pictured third from the left second row.
Early this morning, while arriving at the scene of a vehicle accident on Interstate 95, Engine 23 was struck by a vehicle. The driver of the striking vehicle failed to follow the Move Over & Slow Down Law and was subsequently cited for their actions.
Members were just beginning to exit the Engine when it was struck. Luckily, there were no injuries but this is a very real reminder of the dangers our members face while operating on emergency scenes.
We have said this before and will continue to say it:
MOVE OVER & SLOW DOWN when you see emergency vehicles operating on the roadways. It’s not only the law, it’s the right thing to do.
