The Annandale Volunteer Fire Department is one of the twelve volunteer fire departments in Fairfax County, Virginia. Founded in 1940 by civic-minded citizens of Annandale, today the AVFD owns and maintains two stations: Station 8, located on Columbia Pike in central Annandale near Tom Davis Drive, and Station 23, on Little River Turnpike in West Annandale near Guinea Road. It is the only volunteer department with multiple stations in Fairfax County.

In partnership with Fairfax County's Fire and Rescue Division, the AVFD and FRD provide "first due" EMS and fire suppression coverage from Fairfax City in the west to Alexandria City in the east, and from Burke in the south to Merrifield and Bailey's Crossroads in the north, 24/7/365.

In 2016:

  • AVFD members volunteered 20,347 total hours of their time, performing both operational and administrative duties,
  • Including 3,365 hours spent in training.
  • Our Bingo program played more than 95 nights (after weather cancellations!)
  • With over $900,000 in cash prizes awarded to players.
