About Us

Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department host Jackpot Bingo every Saturday night. The doors open 5:00 PM.

Come on down and enjoy a night of great food (served by the auxiliary starting at 5:30 PM) and fun fellowship!

Early Bird starts at 7:00 PM. 

After a two-year absence, the Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Annual Fair & Parade will return to Brandy Station this summer.

Fire Department membership recently chose to once again have this annual fundraising event and finalized a contract with a midway provider, according to a news release. The 2019 Fair will be held Aug. 7–10 with the parade happening on Thursday evening, Aug. 8.

With schools reopening in Culpeper County on Aug. 12, the fair would be an excellent opportunity to enjoy some family fun just before the kids return, the news release stated.

The Fire Department has signed a contract with RC Cole Shows Amusements from Covington to provide the midway.

RC Cole has been in business for more than 25 years and has recently hosted carnivals in Vienna, Warrenton, Orange and Arlington.

The Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department was founded and chartered in 1951, and its auxiliary hosted the first carnival in August of that year. That responsibility was turned over to the firemen in August of 1955, according to the release.

The Fire Department has received numerous requests over the last two years to resume this traditional event.

The fair can take you down memory lane. It is a nostalgic event for “older” folks and younger ones alike.

The fair is a means to cement relationships with friends and neighbors who are kept apart by busy schedules throughout the year.

More details about the Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Fair will be coming soon!

The Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department

The organizational meeting of this fire company was held in the office of Charles P. Humphries, Manager of the Bottled Gas Corporation of Virginia. The first meeting as a fire company was held in the Brandy Station High School, at which time the Charter was requested from the State of Virginia. Each of the Charter Members donated $100 to handle initial expenses and to get the fire company started. The original fire hall was built in 1952 with no assistance from the state or the county. All funds used for this project were raised by the department and auxiliary members. Work was performed and the hall erected by members in their spare time and through the night.

The first fire engine was purchased with funds raised by the hard work and dedication of the department and auxiliary members. Subsequent funds were raised for the organization by the members of both the department and auxiliary through bingo, carnivals and dinners.

The hall was formally dedicated in 1952 where Admiral Lewis L. Strauss served as the master of ceremonies. The corner stone was laid by the Stevens Lodge #169 A.F. & A.M.

The Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary

The Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary was formed in 1951 to provide support for the Fire Department. They hosted dances, cakewalks, dinners and sold items such as vanilla and baking powder to help raise money for the Fire Department. They equipped the fire hall with tables and chairs with their many fund raising events. They sponsored the first carnival in August 1951, later turning that responsibility over to the firemen in August of 1955.

Culpeper County

Fire and Rescue Services are provided to the residents of Culpeper County through a system comprised of both volunteer and career personnel. There are eight volunteer organizations providing services to the County. There are approximately 594 volunteer members spread among these agencies, of which approximately 361 are active operational volunteers. Each of these agencies has its own officers to oversee the operations of their respective organization. The volunteers are the primary providers of fire and rescue coverage. The majority of the members work regular full‐time jobs resulting in limited availability of volunteers for weekday coverage.

Culpeper County maintains mutual aid agreements with Fauquier, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock Counties. The Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services also seeks to reduce demand for fire and rescue services through a proactive fire prevention and safety program. The program includes numerous public education activities as well as a fire safety inspection program. Inspections are provided for the public school system as well as for commercial and industrial businesses.

Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department
