About Us

Located in the Northwest corner of Yolo County, the Capay Valley Fire Protection District was formed on January 18, 1927 under the provisions of General Law Statues 123, Chapter 191 to serve a largely rural area in the northwest corner of Yolo County.  The District was subsequently reorganized in 1966 under Section 13812.5 et seq. of the California Health and Safety code (Fire Protection District Law).

As a special district governed by an appointed five-member policy Board, the District provides fire protection and Basic Life Support (BLS) pre-hospital emergency medical services (EMS) to a current service area encompassing approximately 172 square miles with a staff of 17 Volunteer Firefighters operating from three fire stations.

The District is dispatched by the Yolo Emergency Communications Agency.  The District has automatic aid agreements with adjacent Esparto Fire Protection District and Yocha Dehe Fire Department, and is also a signatory to the 2007 Yolo County Mutual Aid Agreement.
