Fauquier County Fire Rescue is seeking candidates with prior service as a career firefighter or EMT for an accelerated “Lateral Academy”. You may be eligible for higher pay and service credit based on your experience. Apply today and fast-track your career with Fauquier County Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Management. If you are an experienced Firefighter/EMT or Firefighter/Paramedic and have significant previous training and certification, we want to reduce the introductory training time for you. If you satisfy the basic requirements for this position, your introductory orientation will be ap-proximately six weeks rather than our full Recruit School which is currently approximately 26 weeks. Applicants are still required to complete Medical and Background screening.


Firefighting experience with a minimum of two consecutive years with a career depart-ment (or retired within the last 12 months from a career department) and completed a comprehensive firefighter recruit training program that is equivalent to the Fauquier Fire Rescue Recruit School or 5 years with a career department.

National Professional Qualifications Fire Fighter II Certification (Virginia VDFP or equivalent preferred)

Current CPR Card and a minimum current certification from the Virginia Office of Emergen-cy Medical Services at one of the following levels; EMT-B, EMT, EMT-E, AEMT, EMT-I, or EMT-P

Driver-Pump Operator Certification (Virginia VDFP or equivalent preferred)

Additional Information

Qualified Applicants will be contacted and asked to provide a resume outlining pertinent Fire Rescue experience with supporting documentation. Your documentation will be evaluated to determine your eligibility for the Lateral Academy. If you have any questions, please contact us at or visit to apply.
