Operations Division

Fire suppression is the largest program within Humboldt Bay Fire. Suppression personnel respond to fires, medical emergencies, water and land based rescues, hazardous material incidents, and related calls for service, emergency and non-emergency. Suppression personnel also assist in the Prevention program through code enforcement building inspections, business and multi-occupancy residential structures and fire education efforts.

Operations oversees the day-to-day operations of the five career fire stations as well as Humboldt Bay Fire's reserve Volunteer Firefighter Program.
