Message from the Fire Chief
Welcome to the Cosumnes Fire Department website. I am honored to serve as your Fire Chief and to lead the Cosumnes Fire Department.
The Cosumnes Fire Department is an all-risk, all-hazards fire department. We staff our engines, truck, and ambulances with well-trained personnel to deliver advanced life support emergency medical services and emergency response to fires, vehicle accidents, water rescue incidents, hazardous materials incidents, or any other type of response for which we may be called. We also provide outstanding non-emergency services such as public education, fire and life safety inspections, construction plan review, fire investigations, community risk reduction, and many other administrative functions. Additionally, we have a highly-involved Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteer group.
I firmly believe in partnering with our community to provide the best services for our residents, business owners, visitors, and employees. Our fire department has a strong and proud heritage reaching back to 1893 with the Elk Grove Fire Department and 1921 with the Galt Fire Department. In 2006, both departments joined as one within the Cosumnes Community Services District. Our department maintains the same traditions of altruistically serving the community that our first firefighters had. We have grown to eight strategically-placed fire stations throughout the City of Elk Grove, the City of Galt, and a portion of the unincorporated area of South Sacramento County to serve over 205,000 people within 157 square miles.
The Cosumnes Fire Department is committed to providing extraordinary service through prevention, preparedness, and emergency response. Our personnel strive to exceed expectations at all times. Additionally, our personnel are highly trained and educated, present solutions, and hold themselves accountable to the highest standards. Lastly, our personnel are competent professionals who routinely go above and beyond, exercising respect and dependability. These are the guiding principles of which I am proud to be a part of.
