The Cascade Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1986. For Cascade, difficulty getting volunteers who were available to respond to calls came to a head in 2018. Throughout the fall of that year, the Cascade Volunteer Fire Department was rarely dispatched to calls because the 911 Center knew that there were not enough personnel to respond. In other words, the station was close to closing its doors.
Address: 5497 Cascade Road, Cascade, VA 24069
Through a very intentional recruiting campaign that brought more younger volunteers into the fold and rejuvenated those already on the roster, Cascade has made a drastic comeback in the past few years. The department became a certified transport agency in July of 2020, making it one of 12 volunteer rescue squads in Pittsylvania County. So far in FY 2021, the agency has responded to 99% of the EMS calls it is dispatched to and 100% of the fire calls.
