A Message from the Ventura City Fire Chief

Thank you for visiting the Ventura City Fire Department website.  I hope that you will find the site informative and educational.

I am both honored and privileged to lead the men and women of the Ventura City Fire Department.  Your highly trained Firefighters provide exemplary service out of six fire stations located strategically across the City.  Our Fire Prevention Division provides professional service and assistance to keep our community safe. Each Ventura City Fire engine and truck company is staffed with at least one advanced life support (ALS) paramedic.  Many department members are cross-trained in numerous other disciplines such as Ocean Rescue, Urban Search and Rescue and Hazardous Materials Response in addition to their Fire Suppression and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) duties.  We enjoy a close mutual aid working relationship with our local partner Fire and EMS agencies to provide the best service to our community.  We are proud to be on-duty and ready to serve our community at all times, day or night.
Thank you, again, for visiting our website.  We hope you enjoy learning about our many services and the personnel who provide them.
