The Desert Incident Response team (D.I.R.T) is the partnership of the bike California City Fire Department and the California City pol ice Department to provide the highest level of enforcement, search and r escue, medical care, fire suppression and public education t o OHV enthusiasts.

Together our goal is to create a safe and friendly environment in both rural and recreational area throughout California City and surrounding areas. In addition, joint operations are conducted with the Bureau of Land Management inside the boundaries of BLM land to prevent illegal OHV activity and resource damage.                                                                                              


  medic2The California City Fire Department Desert Incident Response Team responds to medical and traumatic emergencies to provide basic and advanced life support care. Highly trained and skilled Firefighter/Paramedics and Firefighter/EMT’s are assigned to each apparatus and are equipped to assess and manage all patient care situations. In addition the fire department responds to off-highway fire suppression situations, vehicle extrication, technical rescue, search and rescue operations, and any situation that requires fire department assistance.

There are over 1,800 miles of City combination use roads/dirt trails and 33.5 miles of designated OHV trails in California City, to include the OHV Trail into the City's Business District. The focus point was BLM Trail R5, at Campsite C and Chrysler Drive. Two OHV routes were designed from that point to Borax Bill Park, CC10 and CC5. CC10 is a route that follows non-maintained City streets (11 miles). CC5 is a challenging route through City easements (8.5 miles). CC5 merges into CC10 at Borax Bill Park, and continues on to the Business District (14 miles).
