Community Service with Excellence
The Stockton Fire Department is committed to providing excellent emergency and non-emergency customer service – ensuring a safe community through public education, prevention, and aggressive suppression and rescue activities.
After 38 years of volunteer service, Stockton established a fully paid professional Fire Department in 1888. The Department is led by a Fire Chief, who reports to the City Manager.
Since 1976, the Stockton Fire Department has provided fire protection and emergency medical services to the Lincoln Fire District and the Eastside, adding Tuxedo-Country Club Fire Districts in 1984.
In 1992, the City agreed to also provide contractual service to the Boggs Tract Fire Protection District. All four districts have boundaries contiguous to the City of Stockton.
