How to find the Hydrant and Fire & Rescue Station closest to your property.
Many insurance companies providing homeowner's insurance want to know this. You may be able to determine the location of the nearest station by using this map or the location of the nearest hydrant by simply searching your neighborhood and estimating the distance. Most homes in Fairfax County are located within 500 feet of a fire hydrant.

To assist you in determining this hydrant and station information, send an email request to the department's Geographic Information System (GIS) office via email. Provide the property address and your email address, and ask for the station name, address, and phone number that would respond first-due as well as the distance to the closest hydrant. A response will be sent to your email address.
