We, the El Dorado Hills Fire Department, exist to serve and protect the Community through emergency management.


The vision of the El Dorado Hills Fire Department is that, by year 2017, the Department will pursue, attain and retain international accreditation and be recognized as an agency that provides the delivery of quality, professional emergency services to our Community, meeting and exceeding industry best practices. Through the pursuit and achievement of our goals, we will demonstrate continuous improvement in enhancing the services that our Community trusts us to provide.

In honoring our Community’s trust, and with capable administrative support, we will be well trained and properly equipped to deliver all departmental programs and services promptly and efficiently. Through enhanced communications initiatives internally, and through expanded and improved Community outreach externally, we will connect respectfully with all stakeholders. We recognize both the importance and our interdependence with other agencies for the successful accomplishment of our mission and therefore, we will take action to foster improvement in our external systems relations.

With a comprehensive workforce planning initiative, and with enhanced and improved employee training programs, we will invest in our greatest organizational assets, to ensure that our workforce is appropriately staffed and professionally developed to most effectively accomplish our mission. 

Through these efforts, we shall be viewed as an emergency services agency that clearly values integrity, service and excellence as a culture central to our success. Our Community’s expectations will be met or exceeded by holding one another accountable for carrying out our mission, living our values, and ensuring that this vision becomes reality.
