MESSAGE FROM THE FIRE CHIEF

Welcome to the Colton Fire Department’s (CFD) website.

The CFD vision statement is:

The Fire Department will provide comprehensive emergency services to our citizens, visitors, and employees. We will cultivate leaders at all levels of the Department through education, training, and high ethical standards. We will treat all others as we would want to be treated.”

Our first core value is:

“Putting the Community First; it is the spirit that guides all actions of the Fire Department “

It is my honor to serve the citizens of Colton as their Fire Chief. Our vision and core values reflect on what we want to be and what we value.  Each of our firefighters and staff strive to serve our community to the best of our abilities.  We realize that every shift we interact with our residents and visitors in some of their greatest times of need; this is a humbling honor we do not take for granted.

The Colton Fire Department (CFD) was formed on November 21, 1889 and currently serves a population of 54,828 people in the 16-square mile city out of four strategically located fire stations. There are currently 41 full-time firefighters, one Executive Assistant, two volunteers, and one contract Physician Medical Director who staff the department.  In 2018 the department responded to over 7,200 calls for service dispatched through the Confire Joint Powers Agency Dispatch.  CFD deploys three Type-I engines and a Truck that each are staffed by one Captain, one Engineer, and one Firefighter Paramedic; one Battalion Chief is on-duty per day and one Fire Marshal.  Colton has provided Paramedic Advanced Life Support to its citizens as one of the first paramedic providers in San Bernardino County since July 1975.

Colton Fire is a thriving Department with a rich culture that goes back more than 125 years. We are active partners with surrounding communities and respond as part of a robust mutual aid system.  Over the past few years we have seen many retirements and have recruited new Firefighters, promoted new Engineers and Captains, and are currently preparing to promote a new Battalion Chief.  These new recruits and promotions represent an exciting time for CFD as we introduce new faces and innovations to our Department.  Our Fire Marshal has been busy over the last year assuring that inspections, plan checks, and other prevention activities are completed in a time of increased growth and construction in Colton.  Disaster Preparedness, grants, and Community Emergency Response Teams are an on-going focus.  The Fire Explorer Program is a priority for us and we to try to hire from those ranks.  We continue to work jointly with the Loma Linda Fire Department, sharing Command Staff resources.

The Fire Department is in process of implementing industry best practices for cancer prevention of our firefighters.   This includes particulate resistant flash hoods, second sets of turnouts, extractor washing machines, and other engineering practices.  We have a new grant funded fire engine ready to be delivered.  Staff will be writing a new Strategic Plan this year, and we look forward to planning our path forward over the next five years.

Colton Fire Department will continue to function as a partner with our community and we look forward to maintaining exceptional service to our residents, visitors, and neighbors.

Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns at 909-370-5100.

Sincerely,

Tim McHargue, Fire Chief

Pride and Ownership at its Finest. Captain Granger and Engineer Hernandez spent their day off finishing the concrete wall for our new electronic station sign. Over the last couple of weeks, department members demolished the old wall, ran conduit, and formed up the wall in preparation for the new sign. Once the concrete cures, they will install the sign.

SWEET!!..looks great so far!

This will be the sign's second face lift from the original wood sign (which was lurking somewhere in storage). You Go Colton Fire!

Very nice!

Hernandez looks good in that 433 shirt lol George Sanchez

Great job guys but why couldn’t the city employees do this?

Is that guy wearing the local 433 shirt an ironworker?

UPDATE: Mt. Vernon is now open.

Mt. Vernon is currently closed between M Street and Cooley Dr. while our crews are rescuing four individuals from the Santa Ana River. A high anchor system was set up to lower crews into the river to harness up and remove the trapped individuals. No medical aid was required once they were out of danger from the fast moving waters.

Please stay out of the river during these conditions and follow the requests to evacuate.

I’m thankful it’s open again. I hope everyone is safe🙏🏻

Thank you Colton Fire. Wake up city officials time to start finding ways to house the unhoused veterans and others

Job well done to the best 👍

People suffer the consequences just for those who wants to be down there.

All the CPS training and it works lol

Wow 😳

There are some homeless people living in there wow

Is everyone okay

There is no way these idiots didn't know they shouldn't be there and yet they chose to stay and then required rescue putting the fire crew at risk because of their stupidity.

In 1977, Colton Fire Department staffed a Medic Squad with some of the first Paramedics in San Bernardino County. 32 years later, in April of 2009, the squad was shut down due to budget cuts.

Today, February 1st, nearly 15 years later, Medic Squad 211 has returned to service. This could not have happened without the support of our community in passing Measure S, or without the support of our Council. #medicsquad #paramedic #firefighter #colton #coltonfiredept #coltonfire #coltonfirefighters Colton Firefighters Local 935 ABC7 Eyewitness News KCAL News NBCLA

So many great memories!!! This is LL MICN MO435-Go Ahead Medic Squad 211!!! I didn’t realize it was shut down! Congratulations on the return to service👏

Thank you for all you do!!!!

I thank in 1975 Colton started the Paramedic program with medics D.Ewing,B.Hamp an T.McNeil

NBC LA #brightspot

The ceremonial 'push in' ceremony dates to the 1800s when crews returned from a call on horse-drawn equipment, that the animals were unable to push back into the fire station. This meant that the crews had to detach the horses and physically push the equipment back into the bay.

You guys are OK, but you don't rescue animals that are trapped or in danger

On February 1, 2024, the City of Colton Fire Department will be placing a paramedic squad back in service after a 15 year shut down due to budget cuts. With the addition of Measure S funds, the Mayor and City Council approved the hiring of 6 additional firefighter/paramedic’s allowing the medic squad to resume service to the Colton community.

The Fire Department has carried on the tradition of “pushing in” to the fire station a new piece of apparatus when it goes into service.

This tradition dates back to the 1800’s when firefighters used to push in their horse drawn apparatus, when returning from a call, due to the horses not being able to back in.

While Medic Squad 211 is not a new piece of apparatus, this will be the first time this unit is in service since April 7, 2009, so it is fitting of the same honor as a new piece of apparatus.

Crews will be at Fire Station 211 at 0745 on Thursday, February 1, 2024, to help place MS211 back into service at 0800.

For any questions regarding this event, please contact;
