"ALWAYS HERE, ALWAYS READY, SERVING YOU WITH PRIDE AND EXCELLENCE."
Napa City is proud to provide a Class 2 Fire Department.
Established in 1906, the Napa City Fire Department has and continues to proudly serve the close to 80,000 residents of the City of Napa, California. Our Department consists of three divisions, Administration, Operations and Prevention.
The Fire Department serves the community from four fire stations covering 18 square miles within the City limits of Napa. There are plans for a fifth fire station in the Browns Valley area that will be fully operational by the end of 2017. This will help further our area of coverage and improve our level of service for not only the people of Browns Valley, but the city as a whole.
The entire department is committed to the community and its citizens following a set of six core values: Responsibility, Integrity, Professionalism, Service, Cooperation, and Knowledge. Every decision that is made within the department is based on these underlying values.
Each station provides an Advanced Life Support (Paramedic) Engine company staffed with a minimum of three personnel. In addition, Fire Station One provides an Aerial Ladder Truck Company and a Heavy Rescue Unit for special operations and technical rescues.
The department staffing consists of 59 sworn personnel, 7 civilian employees, 1 part time employee and 1 volunteer. Our present annual call volume is almost 9,000 (8,969 in 2015) responses per year. 70% of these calls are medical in nature. Approximately 5% are fire related and another 5% hazardous material related with the remaining 20% in various "other” categories. The department participates in Interagency Hazardous Materials and Urban Search and Rescue Teams, maintaining our Heavy Rescue Unit and three rescue boats.
Our Fire Department also works closely with CAL FIRE, and Napa County Fire Department and maintains mutual and automatic aid agreements with those agencies as well as with the cities of American Canyon and Vallejo. Our department also participates in a Statewide Mutual Aid system as part of the California State Emergency Management Authority (EMA) by housing and staffing a State fire engine (EMA 365) that can respond to large emergency incidents throughout the state.
