A Word from the Chief

On behalf of the Ripon Fire Board and the men and women of the Ripon Area Fire District, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about the services the Fire District provides. The primary mission of the Fire District is to protect the lives and property of those people within the District from the adverse effects of fires or dangerous conditions caused by man or nature.

The Fire District's part-time and paid on-call firefighters are well trained and fully state certified. Each is committed to protecting our community while continually identifying ways to improve the protection of our community and visitors. The Fire District is proud of our ability to maintain the Insurance Services Office (ISO) Class 3 rating, while addressing emerging trends throughout the community. We continue to make the Ripon Fire District a better and safer place to live, work, shop and play.

Before leaving our website, take some time to learn about the many services and programs we provide. Our biggest responsibility is to educate our residents about fire and life safety. Through education and enforcement, we can prevent the tragic effects of fires and disasters. Please do not hesitate to request our assistance in providing educational opportunities for your family or community group. We enjoy the opportunity to meet the people we serve.

As your Fire Chief, I have an open-door policy and encourage the community to stop by my office if there is anything I can do to serve you or just to visit. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your Fire Chief and serving such a great community. I would also like to encourage you to follow us on Facebook for up-to-date news and information about District activities.
