The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District protects over 273 square miles in Northern Sonoma County. The District serves Knights Valley, Franz Valley, Alexander Valley, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley, the Geysers, Geyserville, parts of unincorporated Healdsburg and Lake Sonoma.
The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District is a combination fire department, meaning they employ both paid professional firefighters and volunteer firefighters. There are 6 paid firefighters, 1 part-time fire chief, 1 part-time administrative manager, 25 volunteer firefighters and a fuels crew.
Our biggest threat is wildfires. More residences and buildings are burning from wildfires than any other cause. The wildfires of the last several years have changed our way of life and now, more than ever, we need to “live with wildfire.” The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District offer the following services: Defensible Space Inspections, Wildfire Preparedness Presentations, Wild land Fuel Crew, Community Chipping Days, and Pre-Attack Maps.
The AVA proudly works closely with Fire Chief Marshall Turbeville.
