Your Department of the Quality of Life

Joe Napier, Fire Chief

The Valley Center Fire Protection District has been proudly serving our community since 1981. The Fire District response area covers 84.5 square miles of beautiful rural and suburban wildland interface. We provide service to over 23,000 residents and respond to over 2000 incidents annually. We operate out of two strategically located Fire Stations with a third Fire Station in our community based strategic plan to improve service and reduce response times in a climate of increasing demand. The Valley Center Fire Protection District provides and receives automatic and mutual aid through contractual partnerships with all of the North County Fire Agencies as well as Cal Fire and our Reservation Fire Agencies that are in and around Valley Center.

Our Mission is to reduce Community Risk by providing exceptional all risk emergency response to Structure Fires, Wildfires, and Provide Advanced Medical Life Support Paramedic Services on every responding unit. We are the “department of the quality of life” in Valley Center, making our community a better place to live through our Core Family Values, Community Safety Education Programs and actively participating in all community events with a servant’s heart. We are ready to respond at a moment’s notice to meet the needs of our growing community.
