The San Bernardino County Fire Department is an all-risk/full-service fire department committed to providing the highest level of service in the most efficient and cost effective manner to the citizens and communities that we serve.
Where We Serve
At 20,160 square miles, San Bernardino County is the largest county in the continental United States. Our jurisdiction encompasses 19,278 square miles of extremely diverse environments that stretch from the Los Angeles County line on the west, to the Colorado River on the east, to the Nevada State line and Kern and Inyo counties on the north. We provide services to more than 60 communities/cities and all unincorporated areas of the county.
San Bernardino County's Diversity
Our jurisdiction encounters hazards that include floods, fires, earthquakes, and train derailments, among others, that can impact highly urbanized metropolitan areas, industrial centers, and major portions of the most vital interstate highway and railroad transportation corridors that serve Southern California. We are also home to major entertainment venues such as the Glen Helen Amphitheater, San Bernardino County Fairgrounds, and the California Speedway. Our mountain resort areas, the Colorado River and vast high-use recreational desert lands underscore our diverse geography. In the 2014/15 fiscal year, the San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to 83,695 calls for service in these complex areas.
