Needs Assessment

The Fire Service Needs Assessment is an annual survey conducted by the Virginia Department of Fire Programs.   Fire departments complete a survey questionnaire designed to identify the needs of Virginia’s Fire Service.  Results are then compiled and published in a comprehensive report available each year in January in time for the General Assembly.
