We had a fantastic turnout for our Annual Chicken BBQ Fund Raiser. 

We had a lot of people who were able to sit under the grapes and 'visit'  We had many more taking advantage of our online ordering system and use the drive through for pick up.  We pulled the six lucky winners of our cash drawing, 

1st Place Winner: Jim D.  of Petaluma.   2nd Place Winner: Julie T. of Petaluma.  3rd Place Winner: Robin S. of Petaluma.  4th Place Winner. Jennifer G. of Petaluma. 5th Place Winner: Juanita R. of Petaluma.  6th Place Winner: Mark F. of Petaluma. Congrats to all those folks and a million Thanks to all of you who either mailed in your raffle tickets or bought them at the event. 

This year we broke many records, we had a huge amount of people who pre-purchased meals on line and we sold over 1100 pieces of chicken!! The chicken was cooked to perfection by our BBQ Crew led by Arnold King, they did a fantastic job, we had so many compliments about how good it was, our kitchen crew led by Allen Lewitter, had their hands full getting everything prepped, in order and to the tables for pick up, thank you to them. Our well organized serving line led by Terresa Bradley and her many volunteers did an outstanding job and kept everything running like clockwork, also many thanks.  There are so many people to thank behind the scenes and a hearty 'Thanks' to all of those folks, we could not do it without you!!!

Once again a huge Thank You from all of us here at Wilmar, 

See you next year!!!

                                                       

                                   

 

 Wilmar Volunteer Fire Department serves an area west of Petaluma, California.  We serve over 14 square miles and 1,100 parcels of suburban, rural, and agricultural land.   Our department is comprised of 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 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 Bradley, Fire Chief, Retired Chief Mike Mickelson.
