Thank You for your continued support of our organization



 Wilmar Volunteer Fire Inc. serves an area west of Petaluma, California.  We serve over 14 square miles and 1,100 parcels of suburban, rural, and agricultural land.   We have over 40 dedicated and professional Volunteer Firefighters and support staff serving the community from our fire station located 3825 Bodega Avenue in Petaluma, California.

Our firefighters respond to over 500 emergency incidents each year.  Medical emergencies make up the majority of our emergency responses.  Our personnel also respond to structure and wildland fires, hazardous materials incidents, rescues, vehicle accidents, and requests for mutual aid to our surrounding departments and across the State of California during fire season.

The original fire department was formed in 1966 under the leadership of our first Fire Chief, Bob Mickelson.  Originally, we operated from a local ranch and our Volunteer Firefighters were property owners in the area that came together to fight fires when they occurred. 




   The mission and makeup of the organization has changed over the years and now reflects the latest in technology, equipment, and professionally trained Volunteer Firefighters.  Our mission is now an all-risk one involving responses to structure fires, wildland fires, vehicle fires, auto accidents, medical emergencies, and many other types of calls for service.



Thanks to the generous donations and support of our tax our residents receive quick response from well trained, well equipped, and dedicated Volunteer Firefighters.  Our fire station provides us a centralized location to serve our community.  The fire station has three apparatus bays, an office, day room, kitchen, sleeping facilities, and a modern classroom.  The station is often staffed with Volunteer Firefighters assigned to shift work.  When it is not staffed our Volunteer Firefighters receive emergency dispatches by radio pager and text messaging and respond immediately to the fire station to staff and respond our apparatus.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Volunteer Firefighters are carefully screened and put through background checks and physical examinations before beginning to serve their community.  They receive extensive training on a weekly basis training in the latest fire suppression, emergency medical, and rescue techniques.







The Wilmar Volunteer Firefighters relies on funds from the county and the generous financial support of our community to maintain our high level of service.  Our main Fundraiser occurs in July every year, it is a community oriented BBQ offering a  fun opportunity to gather with family and neighbors while supporting their local fire department. 

We now have have the station manned with two full time staff, who stand ready to respond to your request for service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 Thank you for your ongoing support. 

 Kelly Bradley, Wilmar Chief
