Your Vallejo firefighters answer the call 24/7. But our ranks have thinned even as the threats to public safety grow.

Fewer firefighters, with less experience, working longer hours, answering more calls.  A dangerous recipe that puts your safety at risk.

 

WE’RE THERE FOR YOU
PLEASE STAND WITH US TO KEEP VALLEJO SAFE!

Dangerously
Understaffed

Vallejo firefighters are answering more fire and EMS calls than they did in the depths of bankruptcy, and two fire stations are still unstaffed.

Losing
Our Best

Experienced firefighters are burning out, and new recruits stay away. One in four new hires has left for departments that pay better.

Risky for Us,
Costly for You

Low pay and understaffing means hundreds of hours of mandatory overtime. That means more injuries, higher workers’ comp costs and a drain on tax dollars.

 
 

Understaffed, underpaid and overworked firefighters are bad for business... bad for insurance rates... and dangerously unsafe for citizens.
