Fire and Emergency Services

The Sonoma County Fire and Emergency Services Department is comprised of 15 volunteer fire companies, responding to over 1000 calls per year in excess of 600 square miles in the unincorporated area. The Department provides a full range of emergency and non-emergency services for residents and visitors to Sonoma County through five divisions; Administration, Fire Operations and Training, Fire Prevention, Hazardous Materials and Emergency Management.

Administration Division provides the support services that enable all operations of the Department to run smoothly, such as supporting the other divisions and managing the financial, personnel and administrative duties.

Emergency Management Division is the lead agency for the planning, coordination of response, recovery, and mitigation activities related to county-wide emergencies and disasters.

Fire Operations and Training Division provides training, personal protective equipment, and support to over 200 first responder volunteers. In addition, over 75 volunteers serve as Board Members and support staff. These dedicated individuals serve the community where they live to provide public safety services to residents and visitors every day.

Fire Prevention Division provides plan check and inspection services for fire-related code compliance in coordination with the Permit and Resource Management Department, and administers contracts for fire prevention, code enforcement and plan review and actively participates with the countywide Fire Investigation Task Force.

Hazardous Materials Division is responsible for emergency response to hazardous materials incidents throughout most of the County in coordination with local response personnel. The State certified Type 2 Hazardous Materials Response Team consists of volunteer community members as well as Department staff who are trained to respond to any level of hazardous material incident in the county.
