The City of Dixon Fire Department is celebrating its 150th anniversary with an open house on Saturday, October 9, 2021. The event will be held in coordination with Fire Prevention Week.
Established in 1871, the Department has a long tradition of serving and protecting the Dixon community. That tradition continues today with a full range of emergency services offered 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Department serves a combined population of nearly 25,000, covering an area of 320 square miles. Seven square miles of service area are within the city limits and 313 are in the Dixon Fire Protection District through a protection contract. The Department provides fire protection, paramedic level emergency medical response, fire prevention services, public fire safety education, fire investigations, and emergency management.
Todd McNeal, Dixon Fire Chief says “I am proud of the Department and of all the members past and present for reaching this milestone. We hope the community will help us celebrate and come out to our interactive open house to learn more about fire safety and prevention, as drought and fire dangers continue to grow more severe.”
The open house will be held from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. at the Dixon Fire Department, 205 Ford Way, Dixon, CA 95620.
