That spirit of service continues as we move forward into the future. The men and women of the Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District are here to serve you. From our frontline Firefighters, the sworn, civilian staff, and Firefighter Association members that make-up our workforce, we are committed to providing the highest levels of service possible.

“The mission of the Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District is, “To respond quickly and provide the services of an all-risk agency while being the guardians of the public funds that you entrust to us.” These words summarize what we do, but it is the men and women of the Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District that embrace these words on a daily basis that continue to make a difference in our community.

The Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District is an “all risk” fire department, meaning we will respond to the needs of the community, regardless of the nature of the incident and begin the process of solving the problem to lead to a positive outcome. The Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District has highly trained Firefighters in the areas of paramedicine, structural firefighting, hazardous materials response, urban search and rescue, swift water rescue, command and control, and wildland firefighting.

As the Fire Chief and having worked in various Counties and other fire agencies over a span of 32 years, I am proud to represent such an excellent organization. On a daily basis, I’m impressed with the commitment and resourcefulness of the men and women of our Fire District and their commitment to the residents, businesses, and visitors who frequent our District. As the Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District moves into our next chapter of service, we will continually seek ways to re-think how we may provide our service to be more efficient, more adaptable and more responsive to the needs of our community, always finding ways to raise the bar.
