Fire Chief, Portrait

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the staff of the Alpine Fire Protection District, welcome to our website.  We proudly serve the community of Alpine, California with quality fire, emergency medical, rescue and other emergency services.  Our core ideology is stated in our mission statement, “We are a public safety organization of dedicated professionals whose mission is to save lives, protect property and the environment and serve the community.”  We hope this website will help educate you about our organization and be a means of communicating to you significant events of the District.  I encourage you to explore the site and give us your feedback.  On this website you will find interesting and useful information on fire prevention, emergency medical services, training, community information, and general information about the District.

The District is approximately 27.5 square miles and has a population of approximately 16,500.  The District was founded in 1948 and officially recorded with the county of San Diego on December 19, 1957.  The District currently operates out of a station which was dedicated on March 3, 2006.  The staff of the Fire District is currently 18 personnel, 14 front line personnel and 4 support staff.  First responder paramedics on the engine company provide Advanced Life Support (ALS) to our citizens.  There is also a Mercy ALS transport ambulance, under contract with the County of San Diego, housed at our fire station.

The District is governed by a 5 member Board of Directors which are elected at large from the residents of our District and serve a four year term.  The Board of Directors of the Alpine Fire Protection District meet on the third Tuesday of every month at the fire station board room at 1364 Tavern Road at 5 p.m.
