The Rio Vista Fire Department is a full service organization providing fire response, limited hazardous materials response, full vehicle extrication, and 24-hour advanced life support services.

In the event of a major disaster the Fire Department is the acting Emergency Operations Command (EOC). The Department services the City of Rio Vista, including the airport, and contracts with the Delta Fire Protection District to extend emergency services coverage to the Delta communities.

* NOTE for Cell Phone Users:

Not all 911 calls from cell phones are routed to the nearest emergency call center; many times cell phone 911 calls are routed to the California Highway Patrol first.  If you using a cell phone, your Rio Vista Public Safety services recommend taking the following steps:

1. Program the Dispatch number into your cell phone.

2. Know your location when you call 911!  Not all cell phones and systems are able to immediately track location – the more information the caller can provide, the faster assistance can be sent.
