Thank you for contacting the Ventura County Fire Department. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent social distancing policies, the Ventura County Fire Department has postponed all events and closed public access to all fire stations and buildings providing non-essential services. Effective immediately, all community outreach and engagement activities are postponed indefinitely. This includes fire station visits, youth programs, public meetings and VCFD’s participation in community events.
These postponements and closures are in support of Ventura County’s “Health Officer Order Issued,” effective as of March 18, 2020.
The intent of these changes is to ensure the health and safety of the communities we serve as well as our firefighters, prevention officers, nurses, dispatchers, mechanics and employees. If calling 9-1-1, please let the dispatcher know if you or anyone in your family is experiencing any flu-like symptoms to help protect firefighters and first responders. Everyone is strongly advised to follow the strict guidelines of Ventura County Public Health and CDC to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on our community.
