North County Fire Protection District



The most visible and valued services provided by the NCFPD is our response to and control of, emergency events that may affect our residents, workers and visitors. The District provides a variety of emergency response services including:

Fire Suppression
Emergency Medical Services
Ambulance Transportation
Hazardous Materials Response
Public Assistance

Each day, our department staffs eighteen employees strategically positioned throughout five career fire stations and one combination station (click here to see NCFPD fire station and personnel locations). This deployment model provides the most effective delivery of personnel and equipment to ensure that patient care, firefighting and other call types are responded to and mitigated in the least amount of time. Our organization is committed to ensure when the need arises, our personnel are highly trained, competent, professional and equipped with state of the art fire apparatus and equipment.

During the last fiscal year our fire department responded to 4,730 incidents. Like most fire service organizations, the majority of those call types are medically related. Our District’s emergency response system utilizes a combination of career, reserve and volunteer personnel. The Rainbow Volunteer Fire Department (click here to learn more about Rainbow Volunteer Fire Department) which is a subzone in our organization utilizes volunteer firefighters supported by the District’s career and reserve staff to provide emergency services to the community of Rainbow.

The District has three Battalion Chiefs that each manage specific aspects of the emergency delivery system while overseeing one of three platoons of firefighters.
