Responding to all types of emergencies on a daily basis is the job done by 90 percent of the CAL FIRE workforce. Those emergencies take the form of wildland fires, residential/commercial structure fires, automobile accidents, heart attacks, drownings, lost hikers, hazardous material spills on highways, train wrecks, floods, earthquakes - the list is endless. CAL FIRE firefighters, fire engines and aircraft respond to an average of more than 5,600 wildland fires, and answer the call more than 350,000 times for other emergencies each year.
The ATCFPD enjoys a cooperative fire protection agreement with the California Department of Forestry & Fire Protection (CAL FIRE). The ATCFPD contracts with CAL FIRE for personnel and administration
