About Us

History | Mission and Values | Apparatus & Equipment

The Cloverdale Fire Protection District has a long-standing tradition of providing the highest level of public service to our citizens.  The fire district protects over 75 square miles in northern Sonoma County, including the City of Cloverdale.  Providing services to such a large area is a challenge.  Revenue received from property tax and a special tax is not adequate to sustain a paid fire department.

The fire district depends on volunteers to fulfill staffing needs.  The fire district employs three full-time paid, 2 apprentice firefighters, a part-time fire chief and a ¾ time administrative assistant in addition to its volunteer work force.  Firefighters attend training sessions each week from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  Additional training is often scheduled on weekends.  The commitment to become a firefighter in our community is extensive.  In addition to the time commitment for regular scheduled training there are special training sessions and call outs for emergencies.

Personnel are on call 24 hours a day and often respond throughout the night.  As you sleep, your dedicated volunteer and professional firefighters are in the community providing service.  Many of these dedicated professionals then go on to work in their regular line of employment.  The fire district cannot express enough gratitude to our personnel.  It is rewarding to see how frequently our citizens share their appreciation for the services we deliver.

The Cloverdale Firefighters, both paid and volunteer, also help to staff the Cloverdale Health Care District’s Ambulance.  Often, the driver (EMT-1) of the ambulance is a Cloverdale Fire District Firefighter who is on call to serve the Ambulance District.  When the primary ambulance is transporting patients to the hospital, the Cloverdale Fire Protection District provides the back-up ambulance staffing.  This is just one example of the extended service you receive from your local fire department. 

The Cloverdale Fire Protection District Board of Directors and personnel encourage your participation in our effort to provide the highest level of service we can, given the revenues provided.  If you have any comments or would like to attend our public board meetings, please contact our office at 894-3545, the fire district meets on the second Monday of each month.
