Fire District Consolidations

The Sonoma County Fire District (SCFD) was established in April 2019 after the process of consolidation of Rincon Valley Fire District (established 1945), the Bennett Valley Fire District (established 1948) and the Mountain Volunteer Fire Department (established 1968).  In July 2020, the Russian River Fire Protection District (established 1922 as the Guerneville Fire Protection District) joined Sonoma County Fire District.  In July 2021, the Forestville Fire Protection District (establised 1938 and became a District in 1958) is scheduled to join the Sonoma County Fire District pending the completion of the Sonoma Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) consolidation process.  All these Districts bring a very rich history and their milestones are now integrated into the new organization to begin and create "new history" for SCFD.  Fore more information on the consolidation process, see
