For nearly one hundred (100) years some of these stations have served rural Sonoma County. As the region has grown, our departments have merged in an effort to reduce costs without reducing services. While our level of training, equipment, and size have changed, this is essentially the same volunteer system that has protected our area since the 1930's. We take pride in the fact that many of our newer residents never realize the task of protecting their families and property fall into the hands of truly professional "volunteers". Please support your local volunteer fire department.
