Fire Chief's Message

On behalf of the El Dorado County Fire Protection District, I would like to welcome you to our website.  We hope that you will find our website helpful in locating information about our fire district and the services we provide, along with valuable resources regarding fire prevention and safety. 

Our fire district takes great pride in the high level of professional and dedicated services our firefighters provide to the communities we serve.  As an “all-risk” fire district, it is our goal to meet the needs of our citizens every day.  The unique landscape of our district produces many challenges for our firefighters, from the threat of wildfire to rivers and recreational areas to historic downtown Placerville.  Our firefighters are trained and ready to respond to any and all of these challenges.

I am humbled and honored to work side by side with our firefighters, fire prevention staff and our administrative team, all of whom are committed to meet the needs of our community members.
