SCFPD #1 accomplishes this mission through fire suppression, fire prevention, intervention, medical assistance, and education. Sierra County Fire Protection District No. 1 maintains high standards of training and education for its volunteers. Volunteers act and perform in a safe, courteous, and professional manner, creating strong bonds and professional relationships within the community and with neighboring fire departments.

The Calpine Volunteer Fire Department was formed in the late 1920’s. In 1945, Calpine, Sierraville and Sattley Volunteer Fire Departments incorporated into the Sierra County Fire Protection District #1, which was formed in 1930.

The District currently employs no staff.
