About Central Calaveras Fire
Who is Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue Protection District?
Central Calaveras Fire was formed in 1999 when the Mountain Ranch Fire and the
Glencoe-Rail Road Flat Fire Districts merged.
Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue is the only year-round fire department serving the 4,000 residents and 96,000 acres of Mountain Ranch, Rail Road Flat, Glencoe, Sheep Ranch, parts of Mokelumne Hill, and parts of San Andreas.
Central Fire is made up of a large team of unpaid volunteers plus three Fire Captains earning near minimum wage, a small group of resident firefighters working for a small stipend (less than minimum wage), a part-time Chief, and one administrative assistant. This highly trained group is there and ready 24 hours day, 7 days a week to respond to you, your family’s, and your friends’ emergencies: fires, accidents, medical – whatever comes up.
Currently there are three paid full time Fire Captains (one per shift). Funding for two of these positions has been provided by a grant for the last two years. This grant expired on December 31, 2017. Following a failed ballot measure to increase the local parcel tax to fund these two positions, the Central Calaveras Firefighters Association has been actively contacting all residents of the Fire District for donations to retain these important positions until another ballot measure can be placed on the November 2018 ballot.
All of the other personnel who respond to calls in the District are volunteers. Volunteers include Fire Fighters, Water Tender Operators and Support (rehab) personnel. We rely on our volunteers to help keep our community safe.
