Welcome to the San José Fire Department

The San José Fire Department (SJFD) is committed to serving the community by protecting life, property, and the environment through prevention and response. 


San José was founded in 1777 and is located in the South San Francisco Bay area within Santa Clara County, CA. It is the 10th largest city in the US and the 3rd largest in California. SJFD serves the city-proper and other Santa Clara County areas with a total population that exceeds 1 million.


Responding to approximately 91,000 calls for service each year (from 33 Fire Stations), SJFD is a high-volume, high-performance, "all-hazard" fire department. In terms of critical infrastructure, SJFD is the emergency service provider for a number of high-hazard occupancies, including an international airport; a municipal airport; seven major hospitals (including three trauma centers, and seven emergency departments); the SAP Center, home of the NHL San José Sharks, (maximum occupancy 17,500); San José State University (the oldest public institution of higher education on the West Coast), student population of 33,409; three super regional malls; 108 high-rise structures; and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
