Welcome from the Fire Chief

fcmessageIt is with great honor I serve the community of California City and lead the fine men and women of “Cal City Fire”. We provide services to our residents and to those who work and travel here.   In addition to the City, we service a large area of recreational land and OVH trails that require us to be ready for a wide variety of incidents. Our city is the third largest city in California (square mileage) and our Fire Department responds to nearly 2,000 calls a year. We provide advanced life support services by staffing our engine companies with Paramedics.

Cal-City fire has a rich history of being a leader in the Fire Service and has a commitment to exceptional customer service.  We provide response to a variety of calls for service, both emergent and routine. These calls can include; fires, medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents, special rescue, hazardous materials incidents, assistance to Law Enforcement and non-emergency calls to aid the public. Our service is augmented through participation in mutual and automatic aid agreements with Kern County Fire and Hall Ambulance.

These are challenging times for the Fire Service; but they are very exciting times for the residents of California City.   With the passage of a recent special tax, the residents have spoken clearly that the delivery of public safety services in this community is a priority.   They have also made a statement with regard to their pride in their Fire Department, Police Department and community. Tasked with the management of these funds, it is my commitment to community to continue to work toward the improvement of the quality of our service through innovative methods and unique solutions.

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you find it informative. If we can be of assistance please don’t hesitate to contact us.
