Fire Department

Thank you for visiting the website for the Healdsburg Fire Department. For more than 150 years, our Department has consistently met the challenges of providing a wide spectrum of fire services to our community.

These individuals carry out our mission by working individually and collectively to make Healdsburg a safer place to live, work and visit. We consider it a privilege to serve our community, both its residents and visitors, with the highest level of public service by protecting and preserving life, environment, and property in a safe and efficient manner.
