Field Operations Division
The Field Operations Division is a combination of 80 paid career Firefighter/Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and 343 volunteers. Career firefighters are all licensed EMTs, certified at the Basic, Intermediate, or Paramedic levels, and all are certified firefighters. The career staff is divided into 3 shifts providing full-time coverage from six strategically located stations. Their shifts are scheduled 48 hours, followed by 96 hours off duty. Of the 343 volunteers on the roster, approximately 220 are trained firefighters, EMTs, or both. A number of others serve in essential and non-essential support roles.
SFCFD respondes 6074 requests for sercvice in 2009. We cover 2000 square miles with a population of 77,000 plus. We have two major interstates, other major highways, and terrain varying from high desert to high alpine. Our essential mission and number one priority is to “Provide compassionate, high quality emergency services to the people of Santa Fe County.”
