The Vacaville Fire Protection District is a combination volunteer/paid department with six paid personnel. Volunteers are not compensated for their time. At present, there are approximately 70 men and women in the department. Members are issued protective clothing and must attend monthly drills for training. Each member is issued a pager, when activated by Solano County Dispatch; this notifies the respective personnel of an emergency. The members then respond to their assigned stations for assignment.
