Loomis Fire Protection District proudly protects 15000 people living in an area of 18 square miles. We operate out of 2 stations that protect a primarily rural area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a combination of paid and volunteer status.
The Loomis Fire District is appx. 30mi. North of Sacramento along Interstate 80 between the communities of Rocklin and Penryn in South Placer County. We are bordered by the Penryn Fire Dept. to the North, South Placer Fire Dist. to the East and South and the Rocklin City Fire Dept to the West. Loomis was formed as a Volunteer Dept. in 1930 and started its first paid staffing of 1 firefighter during the daytime in 1984. We upgraded the staffing level in 1990 to 2 Firefighter/E.M.T.-D's on duty 24hrs. a day, supported by a Chief Officer. All paid Firefighters beside having E.M.T.-D status, must be State certified Firefighter 1 and possess a valid CA class B driver liscense with proper endorsments. Most members of Paid staff are full-time employees of surrounding fire depts. and work Loomis on a part-time basis. Many members are State Fire Officer, Driver/Operator I, and Firefighter 2 certified. Expertise includes Swift Water Rescue, Haz Mat Technician, Paramedic (although Dept. not ALS), Oil & Gas Firefighting, wildland and Hurst extrication certifed. Loomis runs appx. 700 calls for service a year with appx. 65% being medical aids. Ambulance transports within Loomis are providied by American Medical Response and the South Placer Fire District. The department also owns 2 adjoining properties to the station with homes built on them. 1 hom has become the Fire Administration building housing the office of the Chief. The other home is a residential quarters for 3 resident firefighters who suppliment the 2 paid staff firefighters on an available basis.
