Welcome to the City of Folsom Fire Department’s virtual front door. The Folsom Fire Department stands ready to serve you; whether your needs are due to an emergency response, questions about fire and life safety regulations, public education, capital improvement projects, or other aspects of Department and community business.
The Department has a strong and proud heritage reaching back to the Gold Rush era of March 3, 1857 when a group of citizens formed the Folsom Hook and Ladder Company to protect the wooden buildings comprising Old Town Folsom. That spirit of volunteerism has been passed on generation to generation within our membership and is seen today as our members help in our community in many diverse ways.
Today’s Department is guided by three priorities: Mission, Members and Community. And, we follow a set of Standing Orders to better serve, which include:
Make service our highest priority
Come to their aid quickly and perform skillfully
Be professional and always act with integrity
Treat all with dignity
Be safe in your attitude and actions
Take care of each other
We work together to make your experience with our City and Fire Department a positive one whether you are a resident, or a visitor to our community.
Fire Chief Ronald A. Phillips
