In March 2019, the City of Victorville re-established its Fire Department after contracting fire services for 10 years.  The history of the department dates back to 1926 when the Victorville County Fire Protection District was established.  In 1930, the Victorville Volunteer Fire Department was created.  In 1976, approximately 14 years after Victorville was incorporated, control of the Victorville Fire Protection District was assumed by the City of Victorville.   Victorville Fire continues to be one of the busiest departments in the region with 24,000 calls for service each year.  


Located in Southern California at the high point between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Victorville is the leading city for both industry and retail in the High Desert region.  Victorville is a growing, vibrant community that is home to approximately 135,000 residents and some of the area’s largest employers.  Clean air, abundant mountain vistas, family-friendly recreational activities, spectacular sunsets, and breathtaking night skies entice locals and visitors alike to fall in love with this city that is within a few hours of SoCal beaches, National Parks, mountain retreats, and other major attractions; and Ontario International Airport is less than an hour away.
