ERVFC also assists the City of Charlottesville and surrounding counties when called upon. The membership at the company is comprised of a diverse group of dedicated men and women who have many different backgrounds, each serving an important role in the organization.

We are always looking to grow our team! For more information, visit our recruitment and retention page here.
