The Sacramento Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the city of Sacramento, California.[3] The department, which operates out of 24 fire stations is also contracted by Fruitridge Pocket and Natomas to provide emergency services.[4] This contracted area expands the departments response area to 146 square miles (380 km2) as they provide services to approximately 470,000 residents.[4]

USAR Task Force 7[edit]

The Sacramento Fire Department is the sponsoring agency for California USAR Task Force 7 (CA TF-7), one of the eight FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces in the state.[5] These USAR Task Forces, which were originally designed to respond to structural collapse caused by earthquakes, have evolved to be used at disasters and catastrophes, both man-made and natural.[6] Along with members of the SFD, the task force also has members from the Folsom Fire Department, Roseville Fire Department, West Sacramento Fire Department, El Dorado County Fire Protection District and Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District.[6]

Some of the teams most notable deployments include the Northridge earthquake (1994), Oklahoma City bombing (1995), World Trade Center (2001) and Hurricane Katrina (2005).[6]

Stations & Apparatus[edit]

The SFD has 24 fire stations spread across the city.[1] Each station has a fire engine as well as other specialty rigs. All speciality rigs, such as the wildland fire engines and the hazardous material truck are cross-staffed by engine and truck personnel.[2] There are also four boats spread across the stations for rescues in the two rivers that both run through, and border Sacramento, the American River and the Sacramento River, respectively.[7]
