Placer County Fire Department
Placer County Fire Department provides exemplary fire protection, prevention and emergency response services to the people of Placer County. This mission is our guiding statement as an organization and as a public service. The men and women of Placer County Fire Department keep this mission at the forefront of their decision making as a guiding personal intent.
Surrounded by profound natural beauty and a diverse and expansive landscape, Placer County is a natural wonder. This natural wonder has inherent dangers from flooding in the valley regions to the ever-present threat of wildfire in the foothills and mountains. Placer County Fire Department is prepared to respond to each of these environments and their unique hazards with our highly-trained and prepared first responders. In addition to suppressing all fire types, Placer County Fire Department is comprised of specialists in emergency response disciplines including: basic and advanced life support, technical rescue, swift-water rescue, hazardous materials, fire investigation and incident command. We work collaboratively and cooperatively with our partners in public safety and are constantly training on emerging trends in emergency response.
Again, thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to providing updates on responses and activities, and critical fire prevention and life-safety messages and resources. I am proud to lead the Placer County Fire Department, and I speak for all of us when I say it is an absolute honor to serve the people of Placer County.
