Special Event Services

The City of Williamsburg hosts multiple large-scale community events throughout the year, such as William and Mary Football Games, Grand Illumination, Williamsburg Live, and more. To help keep these events safe the Williamsburg Fire Department provides medical and fire suppression standbys. 

Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, and Firefighters that support special events within the City perform this function off-duty. As such, monetary payment of off-duty personnel is provided by the promoter of the event.

If you are interested in hiring personnel please fill out the Special Event Permit Application online.
