For more than 150 years, Suisun City has been protected by a dedicated volunteer Fire Department. The Department, staffed by a paid Fire Chief, two Fire Captain-Station Officers and 42 volunteers, is organized into two divisions
- Fire Operations: Fire suppression, emergency medical response, fire prevention, public-assist calls, public education programs and management of public nuisance weed abatement program
- Emergency Preparedness: Preparation for and response to natural and human-caused disasters, Emergency Operation Center (EOC) Operations, SEMS/NIMS training, and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training
Though the Department is staffed mostly by volunteers, they staff a minimum of one engine 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. About 70% of the time, two engines or an engine and a truck are staffed. In addition, volunteers are on-call to respond to incidents requiring additional equipment and personnel.
