Department of Fire and Rescue
​​​​​​​​Prince William County's fire and rescue service is provided through a combination career and volunteer system. Collectively, these organizations work together to provide high quality and efficient firefighting and emergency medical services. The County’s Department of Fire and Rescue currently consists of 574 members, a combination of civilian and uniformed individuals.  The Department of Fire and Rescue is comprised of three main sections: 

The Community Safety section is responsible for reducing  hazards that contribute to the cause and spread of fire. This area of responsibility is demonstrated through code enforcement, fire and explosion investigations, fire protection system and plan reviews, community fire and life safety education and emergency management.

The Operations Section is responsible for response to fire, emergency medical, hazardous materials and citizen assist calls. This section is also responsible for basic and advanced pre-hospital emergency medical care, fire hazardous materials incident mitigation and health and safety services for department members.

The Systems Support Section is an internal customer service provider. The Systems Support section manages department programs and activities from “behind the scenes” to ensure prompt, efficient and effective service to the Prince William County community. This section includes human resources, training, administrative support, budgeting and accounting, planning and analysis, information technology, logistical support and communications. Both uniform and non-uniform members staff this section, providing an diverse mix of internal services to the department and its members.
