    Default Hopewell VA

    It looks like Hopewell, VA is hiring. Can't find much info about the department online, anyone familiar with the department who can chime in on staffing, call volume, morale, etc?

    I know I can call the department directly, which I will be doing, but have gotten a lot of valuable information from these forums in the past. Thanks!

    A couple of the guys I volunteer with work there. Seems to be a pretty good department, although it is small (2 stations, staffing a quint, couple of engines and an ambulance). A lot of industry and factories in part of the city, whereas the other portion is mainly single-family-residential with the usual mix of multi-family and multi-story mixed in for good measure. They're part of the "Tri-Cities" area (Hopewell, Colonial Heights, and Petersburg) and do mutual and automatic aid with the surrounding cities and counties as well.

    Never taking for granted that I'm privileged enough to have the greatest job in the world!
