Humboldt Bay Fire

Welcome to the home of Humboldt Bay Fire

Humboldt Bay Fire (HBF) is committed to community service through leadership, vision, and integrity.

HBF was founded in 2011 through a Joint Powers Authority consolidating the Humboldt No. 1 Fire Protection District and City of Eureka Fire Department. Located on Humboldt Bay, HBF serves the City of Eureka and Greater Eureka area. Eureka is the largest city in the County of Humboldt with approximately 50,000 residents (including the unincorporated greater Eureka area.)

Responding to approximately 6,000 calls for service each year (from 5 Fire Stations), HBF is a full-service, all-risk fire department. In terms of critical infrastructure, HBF is the emergency service provider for a number of high-hazard occupancies, including various types of building construction ranging from old Victorian residences to modern commercial occupancies; 1 municipal airport; 1 hospital; 1 fuel distribution bulk storage plant; as well as a large area in the “Wildland Urban Interface” in the outlying areas of the jurisdiction.

HBF’s staff and firefighters are highly motivated and trained to deliver the best possible community service locally, throughout Humboldt County, and throughout the state of California. From fire and rescue services, to our delivery of Emergency Medical Services, to general public service we stand ready to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Please take the time to explore our site and learn more about your fire department.
