The Virginia Beach Fire Department (VBFD) provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the city of Virginia Beach, Virginia. The department protects an area of 249 square miles (640 km2) as well as 59 square miles (150 km2) of inland waterways and 38 miles (61 km) of shoreline. The independent city is home to a population of 448,479, not including the summer population growth due to tourism, making it the most populous city in Virginia and the 39th largest city in the United States.

The Virginia Beach Fire Department has origins dating back to 1906 when the Town Council felt the need to provide fire equipment to protect the rapidly growing resort area and formed an all volunteer fire department. In 1928 the volunteers felt that the need had grown to require a paid system. The town hired a paid staff of firefighters that also performed the duties of police officers. This dual duty system was necessary as the town did not have the funding to hire single function employees. On January 1, 1963, the Town of Virginia Beach merged with Princess Anne County to form the City of Virginia Beach and thus the Virginia Beach Fire Department was born.
