The Mendocino Fire Protection District was formed in 1948 and is the governing agency for the 501(c)(3) Mendocino Volunteer Fire Department. The Mendocino FPD provides the following services: structural fire protection, emergency medical services to an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)/First Responder level, rescue and extrication, cliff and ocean rescue, first responder for hazardous materials incidents, and fire prevention. Wildland fire protection service is primarily provided by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) in State Responsibility Areas (SRA) during the wildfire season and secondarily by the District; although, the District is often the first to respond to such incidents, particularly during non-fire season months when the Woodlands CAL FIRE station is not staffed.
