The Fire Department Headquarters is situated near the historic district of downtown Williamsburg. It is merely blocks from the colonial capital of Virginia and the campus of William & Mary.
The station itself was built in 1978 and housed equipment that responded "first due" to calls in the city, as well as into James City County and York County. All of the essential functions of the fire department were confined to the building to include; fire suppression personnel, administrative offices and a dispatch center.
Today, fire suppression and EMS personnel are the only occupants. Administrative staff is housed in the Emergency Operations Center next door and dispatch has been moved to a central dispatch location in York County. The station is situated in an ideal location where crews can easily respond to the citizens and visitors of Williamsburg in a timely manner.
