About Us

                                   "Established in 1927"

Dunnigan is a 112 square mile area in Yolo County. It lays approximately 40 miles north of Sacramento. It has over 1,400 permanent residents and welcomes over 25,000 visitors per year.

The Dunnigan Fire Protection District is a combination fire department, with both paid and volunteer firefighters. We provide “All Hazards Response,” which includes (but is not limited to): fires of all types, emergency medical services, vehicle accidents, public assistance, emergency stand-byes, and hazardous materials response – first responder level.

The department is made up of 30 dedicated men and women firefighters that include a fire chief, assistant fire chief, four fire captains, six engineer/firefighter driver/operators, and over 20 highly trained firefighters.  Approximately 25 personnel are trained to the level of Emergency Medical Technician or higher, with some currently enrolled in paramedic school. We also have a fire department chaplain for crisis intervention and stress debriefing. We operate out of one station, Station 12. Out of that station, we provide 24 hour staffing with approximately three firefighters on duty at any given time, 365 days a year.
