ABOUT US

Montezuma Fire Protection District covers approximately 300 square miles of mostly farmland and pastures in California’s Solano County. Montezuma runs out of two stations, 51 and 52, with the majority of personnel being volunteers.

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Montezuma Fire Protection District is to provide fire protection, rescue and emergency medical assistance to the community and its visitors in the most professional, courteous and efficient manner possible.

WHO WE ARE?

OUR HISTORY

Over the decades following, Montezuma personnel provided emergency services to all residents and travelers-through. Solano county saw its share of large-scale emergencies, as well, such as the 1961 fire that raged between Dixon and Elmira and the 1972 flood of Brannan Island.

Until 1992 Montezuma Fire Department had been contracted to provide emergency coverage for Rio Vista and across the river into Sacramento County. In October of that year contracting for those areas ceased and the fire departments of River Delta and Rio Vista began coverage of their own areas. MFPD’s current coverage area still includes Ryer Islands.

Contracts changed, but department members remained. They continued to work as volunteers within both Rio Vista F.D. and Montezuma Fire Protection District, though in 1993 the Montezuma Fire Fighter’s Association was formed.

To assist in quicker responses to areas in Solano County it was determined that several fire stations would be created where fire apparatus would be housed, giving swifter access and shorter response time. These new fire stations were provided for approximately a decade and served well for the purpose they were established. Around the year 2011 a large building was erected at 2151 Collinsville Road and was able to house the fire apparatus from multiple locations. Station 52 now stands to assist with service along with Station 51.

In time, it was determined that it was not favorable to have individuals as members within both departments; 2016 brought the complete separation of Rio Vista Fire and Montezuma Fire personnel. Notably, there are currently several people within Montezuma Fire that have served their community for several decades and are continuing to offer their service today.
