Community Education Request

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.  

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 current Public Health Orders.

For specific station requests, please contact your neighborhood Fire Station by calling them directly at (805) 371-1111. At the voice prompt, dial the station number you wish to be connected to (i.e. ext. 54 for station 54). If you don’t know your nearest fire station, Click here for a full list of fire stations.

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.

For Ventura County COVID-19 information, guidelines and resources, residents are encouraged to visit or call (805) 654-5000. To reach the Ventura County Fire Department, visit or call (805) 389-9710.

Thank you, Ventura County, for taking an abundance of caution during this time. Please be smart and do your part. Wash your hands frequently and continue to social distancing. These recommendations are designed to protect our most vulnerable populations, first responders, and community members to slow the transmission of COVID-19.
