PREVENTION

The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District wants to be known as a fire department that specializes in rural fire protection and specifically for what it does in prevention and preparedness. Responding to emergencies is our highest priority with paid and volunteer staffing, but we firmly believe the work done before an emergency affects the outcome of the emergency more than the response.  We want you to have the information you need to make decisions to prevent an emergency and to make decision during an emergency when we may not be able to help you when you need help the most. Our biggest threat is wildfires. More residences and buildings are burning from wildfires than any other cause. The wildfires of the last several years have changed our way of life and now, more than ever, we need to “live with wildfire.”
