The Fire Department is a full-service fire protection agency under the general law of the City of Oakdale. Like all fire protection agencies, we strive to meet the challenges of today’s needs and expectations. In order to accomplish this, we have strong working relationships with our neighboring fire agencies: Oakdale Rural Fire Protection District and Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Protection District. All three agencies participate in Automatic and Mutual Aid to provide a strong emergency response to the greater eastern Stanislaus County.
Along with our partnering agencies, we pride ourselves in providing exceptional emergency and community services. Our highly motivated, well-trained workforce strives to reach above and beyond the call of duty. The varied demographics of the provide opportunity for its personnel to respond to emergencies in rural, suburban and urban settings. The wide diversity of emergency incidents require firefighters to be proficient in wildland firefighting, structural firefighting, vehicle extrication, technical rescue, swiftwater rescue, hazardous material mitigation, and emergency medical services. Together, we strive to provide the best quality fire protection, fire prevention, fire safety education, emergency medical aid, and other emergency response services, with our available resources.
Joint Staff Engine Agreement with Oakdale Fire Protection District
The Oakdale City Fire Department and The Oakdale Fire Protection District have come to an agreement to provide a better service to the greater Oakdale Community. The Oakdale Fire Protection District has provided the Oakdale Fire Department with a firefighter for each shift to keep the city’s Station #5 staffed with three personnel. In return the Oakdale Fire Department provides service to Oakdale Fire Protection District's Station #1 area which was closed due to budget cuts. On a daily basis, Station #5 is staffed with three firefighters, two being City employees and one from the District. Station #4 is staffed with two city employees. The Oakdale Fire Protection District rotates staffing between the Valley Home and Knights Ferry stations. Our collective goal is to open station all four stations if there enough personnel to safely do so.
