Looking for a way to give back to your community? Consider joining our agency. We provide volunteer fire coverage and ems response to the surrounding community 24-7. Established in 1957, our Charter Members had a vision for providing a necessary service to our community. At the time, Franklin was the closest agency to respond in an emergency.
We recently lost our last active Charter Member. Walter Johnson was one of many that decided more needed to be done. This was not only a time commitment, but also an expense for members back then. If a new battery had to be purchased for a truck, they passed the hat amongst themselves to obtain the funds to purchase the battery. Today, every member has a set of state of the art turnout gear provided by the department. Back then, they purchased their own or had a hand me down set from another agency that they often had to share.
We live in different times. Now folks do not think of giving back. We expect these services to be provided by somebody else. Walter was certainly not one of those people. While he could not ride the trucks and fight fire anymore, he attended meetings and fundraisers. He was always around to keep us grounded, remind us of where we came from and provide much needed advice. His is a lost generation. We will not see more like him, though Lord knows we need them.
So I would ask that you consider stepping up; honor Walter and the others of his generation and give back. Volunteer to serve your community. We provide all the training and equipment. All we ask of you is your time!
Captain Weston Jamison
Capt. Jamison began his career with Carrsville VFD as a Firefighter in 2000. Since, he has put in an unprecedented amount of time and effort into making our department into what we are today. We are extremely thankful to have Captain Jamison on our team. Capt. Jamison is currently a career Lieutenant with the Portsmouth Fire Department, or "the best career department in Hampton Roads," as he would say. Capt. Jamison has 16 years "boots on the ground" with the PFD and almost 20 years "boots on the ground" with CVFD. When you can't find Capt. Jamison at PFD, CVFD, or the mill; one can usually find him livin' the beach life or by his pool at home. We can't thank Capt. Jamison enough for his many years of service to our community. #TYFYS, sir. Here's to many more years of "boots on the ground."
