Neighborhood Fire Stations
The Stockton Fire Department staffs twelve fire stations housing twelve engine companies and three truck companies. Each fire station has one fire engine and the truck companies are located at Stations 2, 3, and 4. In addition, the Training Division, and Communications Division are located at our central fire station, Station 2. Our Hazardous Material (HazMat) Team is staffed by Station 3 and Urban Search and Rescue Team is staffed by Station 2.
To tour a fire station, please contact Stockton Fire Prevention during normal business hours. Thirty-day advance notice is required.
Safe Surrender Stations
Stockton Fire Stations are a safe place for children and individuals in crisis. Although firefighters have daily inspection and emergency duties that require them to be absent from the fire station for limited periods, they will always return. Bright yellow signs designating a "Safe Station" are posted at each fire station to remind us that a fire station is a haven of safety.
The Safely Surrendered Baby law (California Health and Safety Code, section 1255.7) provides a safe alternative for the surrender of a newborn baby in specified circumstances. Under the Safely Surrendered Baby law, a parent or person with lawful custody can safely surrender a baby confidentially, and without fear of prosecution, within 72 hours after birth. For more information about this and places where newborns can be safely surrendered, please contact the
California Department of Social Services.
