A Very Special Thank You To Our Premier Sponsor
Sunrise Farms LLC Petaluma
Our department responds to over 400 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 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.
We enjoy a superb working relationship with our surrounding fire agencies. Our partners at the Petaluma Cal Fire Station respond alongside us to all of our emergency incidents ensuring a prompt response to your requests for service.
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 Fire Department relies heavily on the financial support or our community to maintain our high level of service. Fundraisers occur throughout the year offering our community a fun opportunity to attend family functions while supporting their local fire department. Please check our "News" section of the website for information on upcoming fundraisers.
We stand ready to respond to your request for service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Kelly Brady, Asst Chief (l) Chief Mike Mickelson (r) & The Wilmar Fire family.

Fire Explorer Program
Wilmar Fire began a Fire Explorer Program in the year 2000, which has been a huge success to this day. High School students interested in the fire service are given a “hands-on” approach to all the different duties and responsibilities of a Firefighter. Many of our Explorer’s go on to become Volunteer Firefighters for Wilmar, and some eventually end up with paid career jobs in the fire service!
