The Amador Fire Protection District (AFPD) was organized in 1990 by approval of the voters and resolution of the Amador County Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors act as the Board of Directors for the District.
The District is responsible for emergency fire, rescue, and medical aid service in approximately 85% of the unincorporated area of Amador County. This is accomplished by the many volunteer firefighters that are members of the AFPD, and the response of other firefighters in surrounding fire departments/districts and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The AFPD maintains automatic aid and mutual aid agreements with these departments.
The District provides emergency fire, rescue, and medical aid service to the communities and surrounding areas of Amador Pines, Pioneer, Pine Grove, Pine Acres, Volcano, Martell, Drytown, Willow Springs, Fiddletown, River Pines, and the City of Plymouth.
The District's mission is to provide for the protection of life and property from the threat of fires, medical emergencies, and hazardous materials release. This mission is accomplished through planning, prevention, education, the suppression of unfriendly fires, and providing emergency care for the sick and injured.
The "backbone" of the District is the approximately 65 volunteer firefighters who spend countless hours away from their families and jobs to participate in mandatory training and to respond to over 1500 calls for help each year to fire and medical emergencies in our community.
