Santa Clara Fire District provides fire prevention, suppression, and rescue services to the community of Santa Clara, in addition to Emergency Medical Services. We also provide fire prevention services to the community and engage in emergency planning for major emergencies. The District receives mutual aid resources from other agencies throughout the county, and also provides help to other agencies throughout the county. 

Santa Clara's services are provided by approximately 35 volunteers, and 4 career Firefighter/EMTs. The district operates out of two stations and responds to over 1200 calls for service per year. SCFD is an "all hazards" department that responds not only to fires, but any incident where human life is threatened.

Santa Clara volunteers engage in extensive education and training. State and national certifications held by Santa Clara volunteers include Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Pumper Operator, Driver, Fire Officer I, EMT, EMT - Intermediate, and Paramedic.
Santa Clara Fire District responds to medical emergencies with trained EMTs and Paramedics. While we do not operate our own ambulance service, our responders often arrive before the ambulance and are able to initiate lifesaving treatment right away. 

Rescue 618 and Rescue 628 are our response vehicles for medical emergencies.
