Our Upcoming Events
The Oakland Fire Department has a proud history of fighting fires in the City of Oakland. The men and women of the Oakland Fire Department are ready at a moments notice to respond quickly and with overwhelming numbers to a fire. The priorities of a fire response are:
- Rescue people and pets that may be trapped or endangered by a fire,
- Protect adjacent structures and prevent the spread of fire,
- Contain the fire to the smallest area possible,
- Extinguish the fire, and
- Overhaul and salvage operations to protect property and extinguish all remaining fire.
