  Fire Department

Operations Division

The largest Division within the Chula Vista Fire Department is the FireStructure Fire Suppression (Operations) Division. It is responsible for emergency medical services (EMS), fire suppression, rescue, hazardous conditions, and all other emergency and non-emergency calls for service.

The Operations Division is responsible for ensuring that Chula Vista citizens are served through an efficient and effective system of services designed to protect life, environment, and property. Part of this system includes staffing and maintaining nine fire stations located in all of the city's major regions.

More than seventy-five percent of the calls for service are responses to medical emergencies. Firefighting related calls equal ten percent of the overall responses. The remaining calls range from hazardous material responses, to rescues, and public assist requests. (Annual Incidents).

The caring professionals who staff Chula Vista's Fire Stations respond to calls for service on a variety of automotive fire apparatus. The most common piece of equipment is a triple combination engine. This is composed of a water pump, a water tank, and a full complement of hoses. The second is the aerial ladder specializing in rescue and ventilation operations. The third most seen is the command vehicles for the department chiefs. Our department also manages two pieces of speciality equipment. Our wildland brush apparatus responds to brush fires within the city limits and beyond and our heavy rescue / light & air apparatus that is capable of doing both support operations and managing entensive rescue operations.

The Fire Suppression element of the Operations Division is divided into three platoons, A, B, & C Shifts. These Shifts are supervised by Battalion Chiefs who report directly to a Deputy Chief. The Fire Department personnel assigned to these shifts consist of Fire Captains, Fire Engineers, and Firefighters. These people are a highly professional, trained force of men and and women who respond to approximately 13000+ calls-for-service annually.
