Welcome To Colma Fire Protection District

The Colma Fire Protection District was founded in 1925 by a group of volunteers who banded together to help protect their community. That same spirit of community exists today with 36 members of the department who respond in time of need.

Our department is unique in the bay area in that it is a Paid – on – call department whose members respond from home or work 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The fire district has a paramedic on duty 24 hours a day ready to respond to any call for medical assistance. In addition, all of our members are certified as fully trained firefighters able to mitigate any emergency.

While our staffing model may be different, our response times meet or exceed the same standards which are set for fire departments who fully staff a firehouse 24 hours a day. Each member of our department is committed to serving the community and keeping our neighbors safe.
