About Us

The Williams Fire Department was officially established in 1921. The department was a completely volunteer fire department. Recently the City of Williams has identified the need to transition to a partially paid/partially volunteer department. The Department will continue to rely heavily on volunteers and we encourage anyone interested in volunteering to please contact us.

The City of Williams is proud to announce our first full-time paid position of Fire Chief which will be filled by Chase Pearson. Chase was born and raised here in Williams, and is an active part of the community. He began volunteering with the Williams Fire Department in 1999. Chase worked for Fort Mojave Mesa Fire District for 13 years and has been with the Verde Valley Fire District since 2019. Chase brings great insight and many years of experience to the table. We look forward to the departments exciting new future.

The WFD does not have personnel manning our three fire stations in Williams.  We are dispatched by the Williams Police Department and our available members respond to the closest fire station. However, the Department has a 10 year progression plan which will include 24/7 service, and a paid staff made up of 1 Fire Chief, 3 Fire Captains, and 6 Firefighters.

At this time the WFD Roster consists of 27 members which includes 1 Fire Chief, 20 volunteer Firefighters and 7 volunteer support members. Each of which play a vital role in saving lives. The WFD is an all hazard agency and responds to traffic accidents, fires, and medical calls.
