The Graton Fire Protection District formed in 1951 to serve the
community of Graton and Northern Sebastopol. Initially, when there was a
need for the fire department, citizens would go to the firehouse and ring
the siren, calling farmers from the fields to respond. Later on, a local
business person would receive the emergency phone call and run down to
sound the siren. Today, we have the enhanced 9-1-1 system that provides
the caller address and dispatchers trained with pre-arrival instructions
for medical calls.
Graton Fire was one of the first to purchase the "Jaws of
Life" and responded to traffic accidents throughout West County.
Welcome to the Graton Fire Protection District, home
