MENDOCINO volunteer

In existence since 1887, the Mendocino Volunteer Fire Department is the oldest on the coast. Our dedicated crew of 28 men and women come from all walks of life, and range in age from 20 to 70. All of them share a a genial camaraderie, and derive great satisfaction from the services they provide their community. Weekly training sessions ensure that they stay current with their skills and certifications. They receive up-to-date training in CPR, emergency medicine, hazardous material responses, technical rescues, and of course, the skills required to protect life and property from fire.
