For life-threatening emergencies, dial 9-1-1.
It is my honor and privilege to serve as your Fire Chief and to lead the women and men of the Folsom Fire Department.
I joined the City of Folsom team in 1998 as a firefighter-paramedic and have served in many roles within the department. My colleagues and I share a passion for serving the Folsom community, and we strive to make every interaction a positive one.
I want to give credit to the professional and dedicated women and men of the Folsom Fire Department; they are the ones who make this department exceptional. As we move forward as a department, I look forward to the great things we will accomplish together. The Folsom Fire Department will continue to provide a tradition of excellence in fire suppression, emergency medical services, and hazard mitigation to the City of Folsom.

The City of Folsom Fire Department is an all-risk, all-hazards fire department. We staff our fire engines, fire trucks, and ambulances with well-trained firefighter-paramedics to deliver the best-possible 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, and many other administrative functions. We also have highly-involved Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and Citizens Assisting Public Safety (CAPS) volunteer groups.
Five fire stations are strategically located throughout the community to serve the residents, business owners, visitors, and employees in Folsom.
Our fire department’s proud history reaches back to the Gold Rush era. On March 3, 1857, a group of citizens formed the Folsom Hook and Ladder Company to protect the wooden buildings in Old Town Folsom. You can see many of these original buildings in the Historic Folsom District today. We continue the tradition started by the city’s first firefighters to selflessly serve our community.
