Serving since 1856 the Charlottesville Fire Department is the primary fire protection provider to the City of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. These responsibilities include the protection of a diverse array of residential, commercial, educational, historical, sporting, entertainment, and other special properties.

The Charlottesville Fire Department is staffed with 91 full time personnel. Daily, the Charlottesville Fire Department operates out of 3 City fire stations staffing a combination of 4 fire engines, 2 aerial devices, and a chief officer in a command vehicle. In addition to fire suppression services the Charlottesville Fire Department provides the City and the University with emergency responses to hazardous materials incidents, special technical rescue incidents, and emergency medical incidents including sudden severe illnesses, accidents, and injuries.

The Charlottesville Fire Department has been twice accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International and in December 2014 the City received a superior Class 1 rating as a result of an Insurance Services Organization (ISO) analysis of the city's fire suppression capabilities. At the national level, less than 1% of jurisdictions that ISO reviews receive such a superior fire suppression capabilities rating.
