The MT. SHASTA CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT proudly protects over 4000 people living in an area of approx four square miles. We operate out of two stations that protect a primarily residential area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a combination of paid and volunteer status.

The Mt. Shasta City Fire Department is made up of two paid staff, 25 volunteers, and 12 explorers, under the leadership of a full-time Chief. Its two fire stations house four pumpers and a rescue unit, and the department responds to about 300 fire and medical emergency calls per year. The department is a partner with all of the other fire protection agencies in Siskiyou County via a mutual aid agreement and also works cooperatively with the US Forest Service, CDF and other fire agencies to reduce fire threats to the community from adjacent forest and wild-land areas.
