The Department is an independent California special district that provides fire and emergency medical services to a portion of the West end of the unincorporated area of El Dorado County. The Department operates under a Shared Services Agreement with the Rescue Fire Protection District. The Department currently operates six (6) fire stations (including Rescue). The Department encompasses approximately 100 square miles and serves an estimated population of 50,000 people. The Department provides fire suppression, emergency medical, paramedic ambulance transport, technical and heavy rescue, fire prevention/community risk reduction, and public education services to a predominately suburban community that still retains large areas that are rural in nature.
