About the Redwood City Fire Department
The Redwood City Fire Department (RCFD) was established in 1861 and has a proud history serving the Cities of Redwood City and San Carlos, as well as portions of San Francisco Bay and unincorporated areas of San Mateo County. We are a Class I Fire Department providing exceptional customer service out of seven fire stations. We staff seven type one fire engines, one tillered aerial ladder truck, and one Battalion Command Vehicle. Additionally, we cross staff one type five fire engine, one breathing support, one fire boat, two rescue boats, two unmanned aerial systems (drones), two utility trucks, and one fuel tender. The Department provides engine-based paramedicine, with one Paramedic assigned to all front-line apparatus. We are a part of a borderless response system within San Mateo County, utilizing Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to respond with the closest apparatus. The Department actively participates in the State’s Master Mutual Aid plan. Additionally, we support the California Task Force 3 Urban Search and Rescue Team, and the South Bay Incident Management Team. The Fire Prevention Bureau serves the community by helping residents and business owners follow the building and fire codes as directed by the City Council. The inspection program is managed by our Fire Marshall, and is facilitated by the Deputy Fire Marshall, Fire prevention Officers, and all suppression personnel. The Department also serves the community through volunteer programs which support public education and emergency preparedness.
