mission words

Fortuna Volunteer Fire Department

Fortuna’s Fire Department is operated totally by volunteers with the exception of the Fire Chief. Our five Fire Companies, including one in Campton Heights and one in Hydesville, answer calls any time of day or night, through rain, sleet or fog, holidays and weekends. The Fire District covers an area of approximately 26 square miles with a population of 15,000.

The Department participates in nearly every community event in Fortuna. Firefighters volunteer to put up and take down event banners and seasonal decorations. We enter fire trucks in parades and offer free rides on our antique fire engine. During rodeo week we organize water games for kids, as well as entertaining a crowd with a bit of friendly competition among ourselves.

To preserve and protect the life, health and property of the residents of the Fortuna Fire Protection District from fire, disaster and emergency incidents through education, training, prevention and preparation.
We are committed to active participation within our community, to serve as role models and to effectively utilize all our available resources to provide the highest level of service possible.

We will strive to maintain our operational readiness and response capabilities to meet the needs of our community both now and into the future.

We value the following guiding principles and believe they establish the foundation upon which our members are able to build an effective emergency services team:

Honesty – Integrity – Respect
Teamwork – Professionalism

Volunteers Save Lives

Do You Have What It Takes?

As the saying goes “if it weren’t for volunteers who would answer the call for help?” In many of our communities this is definitely the case. Firefighters will usually be the first on scene be it a fire, accident, medical emergency, rescue or any sort of disaster – when the fire whistle blows, they answer the call. If you have the desire to help others, maybe on the worst day of their lives, then volunteering as a firefighter in your community just might be the right thing for you.
