Volunteer Fire and EMS Departments Can Purchase Bulk Fuel Direct Through State Contract

In 2018, HB1170 was passed, allowing fire companies as defined in §27-6-01 or volunteer emergency medical services agencies as defined in §32.1-111.1 that is recognized by an ordinance to be part of the safety program of a county, city, or town to utilize state contracts to directly purchase motor fuel from the Virginia Department of General Services without seeking approval from the governing body of such county, city or town.

For more information regarding the benefits of these contracts and how to purchase from them, please contact your Local Government Account Executive. Learn more.
