Amador Fire Protection District recently adopted a 5 year strategic plan which can be viewed here:Strategic Plan 2017-2022
The Amador Fire Protection District (AFPD) was organized in 1990 by approval of the voters and resolution of the Amador County Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors act as the Board of Directors for the District.
The District is responsible for emergency fire, rescue, and medical aid service in approximately 85% of the unincorporated area of Amador County. This is accomplished by 30 paid AFPD fire staff, the many volunteer firefighters that are members of the AFPD, and the response of other firefighters in surrounding fire departments/districts and Cal Fire. AFPD maintains automatic aid and mutual aid agreements with these departments.
The District provides emergency fire, rescue, and medical aid service to the communities and surrounding areas of Amador Pines, Pioneer, Pine Grove, Pine Acres, Volcano, Martell, Drytown, Willow Springs, Fiddletown, River Pines, and the City of Plymouth.
The District strives to provide for the protection of life and property from the threat of fires, medical emergencies, and hazardous materials release. This mission is accomplished through planning, prevention, education, the suppression of unfriendly fires, and providing emergency care for the sick and injured.
The District has approximately 20 volunteer firefighters who spend countless hours away from their families and jobs to participate in mandatory training and to respond to over 2000 calls for help each year to fire and medical emergencies in our community. These volunteers are supported by full time fire personnel that staff 4 of the 7 AFPD stations 24 hours a day in Plymouth, Pioneer and Pine Grove and surrounding areas. The remaining stations are staffed by volunteer personnel. In addition to staffing the mentioned stations, AFPD paid staff are responding to calls in Lockwood Fire Protection District.
