Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue, established in 1966, is the 2nd largest career fire department in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The department serves Prince William County, which is part of the Washington Metropolitan Area. The County encompasses a total area of 348 square miles (900 km2) and includes within its boundaries the independent cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. It also includes four incorporated towns, Dumfries, Haymarket, Quantico and Occoquan. The current population of Prince William County is 402,002 (as of 2010 census).


The Department of Fire and Rescue has three main sections to provide service to the Prince William County. These sections are Community Safety, Operations, and Systems Support.

Community Safety

The Community Safety section's primary responsibility is to reduce 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 of the department 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.

Systems Support

The Department's Systems Support section is an internal customer service provider. The Systems Support section manages department programs and activities from "behind the scenes". 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 eclectic mix of internal services to the department and its members.
