Sac metro Fire: “Let Us Introduce Ourselves”
From Robert L. Webber, Sac Metro Fire
Sacramento Region–The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District, also known as Metro Fire, is the seventh-largest fire district in California with 38 strategically located fire stations. The highly skilled firefighters and support personnel of Metro Fire serve nearly 640,000 citizens over a 417-square mile area, serving Sacramento and Placer counties including the City of Citrus Heights and the City of Rancho Cordova.
The men and women of Metro Fire run approximately 65,000 emergency calls annually. These calls vary and include all types of emergency situations, from fires to auto crashes to flooding.
Historically, Metro Fire represents 16 former fire agencies, some of which were founded more than six decades ago. In the early 1900’s many of our Sacramento communities had their own fire departments and over the years these departments have merged and become more efficient with their resources.
In 2000, American River Fire District and Sacramento County Fire Protection District merged to become Metro Fire.
