Yocha Dehe Fire Department

Yocha Dehe Fire Department

Public safety is a priority

The Yocha Dehe Fire Department (YDFD) plays a vital role in emergency response and life safety throughout the Capay Valley and Yolo County by providing fire protection, technical rescue and paramedic emergency services. YDFD proudly serves as a community partner through mutual aid agreements with other fire departments to protect the citizens and land in Yolo County.

When it was formed in 2004, the mission was clear: build a department for the entire community designed to work hand-in-hand with existing resources to provide the best fire and emergency services possible. The YDFD has since evolved into a state-of-the-art fire station.

Today, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation is proud that YDFD is the only Native American fire department to achieve accreditation from the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) in 2010 and for a second time in 2015 and will continue to invest in resources that protect our people, our land and our greater community.

Yocha Dehe Fire Department publishes an Annual Report to highlight the accomplishments for the department each year. For more information on the department's long-term goals, please see the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan
