Welcome to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department website where I hope you will find that we are here to serve you, the Santa Barbara County citizens, visitors, and businesses. We are fortunate to serve in a beautiful and diverse county.
It is our mission to serve and respond to the dangers of fires, medical emergencies as well as to educate our communities about fire safety codes and regulations. We are committed to providing these services in an efficient, courteous and cost effective manner. Our department accomplishes this through constant training and education of our personnel. Training and education also takes place outside the department at community elementary schools involving the Safety Trailer Program and in a gathering of neighbors involved in the Community Emergency Response Training.
There will be many challenges ahead of us to provide the high level of service that the citizens of Santa Barbara County expect and deserve. I look forward to working with county and private sector leaders in the coming year to provide that service.
Fire Chief Michael W. Dyer
