MVFD was founded in 1980 and is the first responder for emergencies in an especially challenging area just to the east of Sonoma Valley. The terrain is vast—over 7200 acres; steep—rising from 300’ on the valley floor to over 2,300’ in just five miles of roadway, making access difficult and time consuming; prone to extremes in weather—drought in the summer and fall, with the heightened risk of fire; no reliable source of year-round water; and storms in the winter.
In the October 2017 fires, 46 homes were lost in the Mayacamas, but 2 in 3 were saved by the heroic efforts of the entire County-wide fire team. Five of the MVFD Firefighters lost their homes while they were saving other people’s property.
We have two fire stations:
Station 1 is located at the intersection of Trinity and Cavedale Roads
Station 2 is located on Cavedale Road, 5 miles from Highway 12 and 2 miles from Station 1
We currently have 9 volunteer firefighters that are fully trained to state firefighting standards. We have 4 fire engines.
