The California Department Of Forestry And Fire Protection has the responsibility to provide fire protection in the wildlands, and will provide some emergency medical services, but these services are only provided during their fire season staffing period, which runs from June to October. Concerned citizens wanting to provide fire and emergency medical services to a community that was often without officially organized the Mid-Coast Fire Brigade in June of 1979.
The Fire Brigade is made up from community members who volunteer their time to provide these services to our community. There are fifteen men and women currently serving on the Mid-Coast Fire Brigade with five fire fighting apparatus.
These volunteers have been trained in emergency medical intervention, including CPR, defibrillation, and firefighting skills. They meet twice a month to practice their skills; they are dedicated to provide you with the essential services of fire and life safety you deserve. However, as with most organizations, the organization is only as good as its weakest link, without the support of the community, the Fire Brigade cannot exist.
