Jackson Rancheria Fire Department Offers All Risk Hazard Protection
In June 2007 the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians organized the Jackson Rancheria Fire Department as an all risk hazard protection unit.
The department’s purpose is to protect and save lives, respond to medical emergencies, prevent, suppress and control fires, perform rescue operations at emergency scenes, and prevent fire damage to the property and environment.
The department is headed by the Fire Chief and each 24 hour shift is staffed by a Captain, an Engineer and a Firefighter. It is located in the Public Safety Building and operates two “first out” pieces of equipment plus a reserve engine.
