The Angwin Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1921. Pacific Union College Fire Department also created a department in the early 1900s for the protection of the college. The fire department arrived in its current form and location after the Pacific Union College Fire Department and the Community Fire Company merged its resources in 1958. Under the leadership of Chief Myron Newton (1921-1941), the Department began the development and construction of the facility that currently houses the Department today. Since then the Department has faithfully served the community under the leadership of thirteen Fire Chiefs and Station Leaders, and over 350 firefighters.
In 1973, the Angwin Volunteer Fire Department merged with the Napa County Fire Department. The Angwin Fire non-profit continues to provide a support to the volunteer firefighters of Angwin and a fundraising arm for the station and annual budget.
Currently, the Station consists of 40 personnel, one type-1 structure engines, one type-2 wildland engine, one type-6 engine, one 2,100 gallon water tender, one light rescue unit, and also houses a type-3 reserve wildland engine for the county.
The Department averages 300 calls per year, with the majority of these calls being medical aids.
As an integral part of the cooperative fire protection plan for the Napa Valley, the Station responds to fires, rescues, and other requests for emergency assistance in the surrounding communities of Pope Valley, Lake Berryessa, Deer Park, St. Helena, Calistoga, and the City of Napa. During the traditional fire season, the Station is frequently called upon to respond to wildland fires in various regions of the State.
The facility provides housing various community events, such as elections, vaccinations, community meetings, and arts and crafts groups. These facilities are maintained by Station personnel and the donations and generosity of our community members.
The primary mission of the Angwin Fire Department is to provide high-quality, efficient and cost-effective fire protection services and state-of-the-art emergency pre-transport medical care within the communities we serve.
