The Professional Firefighters of Chesapeake Local 2449 provides a unified voice, advocacy, and education for its full-time career Fire/EMS members in Chesapeake Virginia. Local 2449 looks to exemplify the traditions of the International Association of Firefighters and our Brothers and Sisters serving throughout North America.

The men and women of Chesapeake Local 2449 are highly trained to respond to various incidents including fire suppression, EMS response and transport, Fire Investigation, hazardous materials, rope rescue, structural collapse, confined space, trench rescue, swift water rescue, accident victim extrication, foam response, and marine response. Some of our members participate in regional and national response teams including VA-TF 2 Urban Search and Rescue Team, Marine Incident Response Team (MIRT), Metropolitan Medical Response Team (MMRT), accelerant detection K9 (Cinco), and Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT).

Our members proudly serve the citizens and visitors of the City of Chesapeake and surrounding communities through Auto Aid as well as Mutual Aid. We provide this service through three shifts (A, B, and C) operating from fifteen fire stations 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
