Suppression

The goal of the Fire Operations Division is to maintain a constant state of readiness to respond and protect against injury, loss of life, and/or property damage caused by fire, medical, and emergencies when needed. The division is staffed with well-trained personnel and teams with diverse and highly specialized skill sets to meet the wide ranging demands of the Department. Because our firefighters are often the first responders to people in need, Department firefighters provide many other valuable services to the community in addition to fire suppression, including emergency medical treatment, technical rescue services and response to hazardous material releases. On a daily basis the division staffs and coordinates eight companies, including fire engines, a ladder truck and several specialized support units. Daily operational staffing is 24 personnel.

Structure fire responses typically include four (Type 1) fire engines, one ladder truck, a duty chief and an ALS ambulance. Firefighting efforts in the wildland areas of the Department require different techniques, equipment, and training from more familiar structural firefighting operations. Wildland responses include two fire engines, a duty chief and water tenders often working in conjunction with firefighting aircraft and hand crews from CAL FIRE to protect the wildland-urban interface areas of the Department where residential development meets with open space and natural wilderness areas. These operations are often supplemented by Department safety officers, fire investigators and additional chief officers.

Under the general guidance of the Division Chief of Operations, the division is managed on a 24/7/365 basis by three Division Chiefs. Serving the community around the clock, operations personnel are on duty and at your service every second of every day.
