Message From The Chief

Welcome to the Sunnyside of the San Joaquin Valley. The Coalinga Fire Department is proud to serve this community. The members of the Coalinga Fire and EMS are highly dedicated, extremely motivated, and loyal to the residents we serve.

Our department has been serving this community since 1903. The men and women that wear our badge have done so proudly during extremely difficult times. This community has experienced growth, economic hardship, a devastating earthquake, recovery and all the while providing a high level of Fire and EMS service to not only the citizens of the city but to those who reside in the area around us. I joined this group of devoted public servants on May 1, 2012, and am proud to be given the opportunity to lead the Coalinga Fire Department to even newer heights.

The Coalinga Fire Department website is meant to provide the public to an inside look at what is going on within our department and to share our mission of continuing to make the City of Coalinga a safe place to live and raise a family. Please don’t hesitate to let me know how we can be of better service to you.
