In 1873, 34 men agreed to form the first fire company, now known as the COLUSA FIRE DEPARTMENT. Since that time, the Colusa Fire Department has maintained a tradition of unyielding service to the citizens of Colusa. The department is a combination of paid and volunteer personnel which encompasses a paid staff of four (4) and a volunteer roster of twenty-five (25). From human-driven hose carts to current state-of-the-art firefighting equipment, the Colusa Fire Department has always maintained a vision of meeting today’s challenges and preparing for tomorrow’s. We rely heavily on our volunteers in order to keep this mission alive.
We are a community-based organization focused on helping make the world around us a better, happier place. With the help of our tireless staff, we organize fundraisers, exciting community-building events, and in-depth training sessions for our volunteers. Be a part of something great and join us today!
