Lake Jackson VFD is approximately 30 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., just south of the City of Manassas in Prince William County, Virginia. Our fire station sits adjacent to a private, man-made lake named the same, on a tributary of the Occoquan River. Our primary response area encompasses approximately 22 square miles and approximately 4200 homes.
Lake Jackson VFD is a volunteer department, staffed by trained volunteers and augmented by career personnel. It was first established in 1951. We are one of 12 volunteer departments in Prince William County, which has a total of 22 stations. Volunteers staff the stations of the County on nights during weekdays, and 24-hours a day on weekends and holidays.
To accomplish our mission, we operate 2 pumpers, one tanker, a brush truck, and 2 ambulances with capabilities ranging from basic to advanced life support for the community. We also protect the community with a Swift Water Rescue Team. We utilize 3 Chief’s vehicles and a Battalion Chief vehicle to assist our crews and other department crews on large-scale incidents. Lake Jackson, Stonewall Jackson, Yorkshire, and Nokesville make up the 8th Battalion of Prince William County
