The Williamsburg Fire Department provides the City with Advanced Life Support (ALS) services. The firefighter/medics employed by the city respond to all types of medical emergencies and are trained to assess patients, cardiac monitoring and defibrillation, administer intravenous medications, start IV’s, and perform many other life saving skills. Before a medic is released to perform these duties he or she has to attend a two year training program to achieve Paramedic status, as well as endure a strict instructional program by a certified Paramedic in the department. Paramedics are also required to complete 72 hours of recertification training every two years.


The City of Williamsburg has provided the firefighter/medics with essential tools in order to aid them in giving citizens and visitors unsurpassable emergency medical care. The department currently has a fleet of three ambulances containing sophisticated state-of-the-art life saving equipment
designed specifically for advanced life support.
