Sacramento / Weed Volunteer Fire and Rescue proudly protects 200 people living in an area of 600 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 volunteer status.
The department covers a highly wooded area in the Southern Sacramento Mountains with about 200 full time residences and up to 1,000 residences in the summer time. The department was started on July 28, 1960, with 20 members. The Scaramento families each paid $5.00, and the Sacramento Methodist Assembly paid $25.00 for a operation fund.
