The Anaheim Fire Department is the agency that provides fire protection and emergency medical services for Anaheim, California.

History[edit]

In 1857 the City of Anaheim was incorporated and the City's volunteer fire system was established.[3] Initially the volunteer department consisted of twenty men. It wasn't until 1915 that the department purchased their first motorized ladder truck.[4] At this time the Anaheim City Council authorized the employment of two full-time firemen. These two men worked 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and lived at the Anaheim Fire Station.

Volunteers continued to provide fire services until 1960, when the number of annual calls reached nearly a thousand and it was felt that the Department should be made up of professionally trained fire personnel.[3]

Metro Cities Fire Authority[edit]

The Anaheim Fire Department is part of the Metro Cities Fire Authority which provides emergency communications for multiple departments in and around Orange County.[5] The call center, known as Metro Net Fire Dispatch, is located in Anaheim and provides 9-1-1 fire and EMS dispatch to over 1.2 million residence covering an area of 200 square miles (520 km2). Other departments included in Metro Net include Brea Fire Department, Fountain Valley, Fullerton Fire Department, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach Fire Department, Newport Beach Fire Department, Orange Fire Department and Orange County Fire Authority.[5]

Stations & Apparatus[edit]

The Anaheim Fire Department is divided into battalions, each consisting of six fire stations.[2] This includes an unnumbered fire station which provides emergency medical services to Disneyland.[6]
