Fire Chief:
Chief Greg Lewis
Greg Lewis
The fire chief is responsible for the entire department. The chief sees that all aspects of operations, training, prevention, and education are collectively accomplished through an effective span of control and responsibility. The fire chief works closely with city leaders and other department leaders to ensure coordination within the city. They also ensure that the department remains current with its mission and goals and continues good relationships with the citizens of our community.
Fire prevention is a major area of responsibility for the Fire Department. Historically, every major fire has underscored the need for good fire prevention. The Fire Chief is given the responsibility to establish and maintain fire and life safety throughout the community. This is accomplished by the development of comprehensive fire and life safety laws.

Fire code compliance is accomplished by:

1. Reviewing plans for new construction
2. Identifying potential hazards
3. Conducting fire inspections

The Fire Marshal coordinates or performs all business, commercial, and construction inspections. Fire safety standards recommend that all typical businesses be inspected once per year. There are approximately 420 businesses that require business inspections.

The Operations Division is responsible for the coordination of day-to-day activities of the Fire Department. Operations maintain continuity in performance of activities. Firefighters are required to meet minimum training requirements mandated at both State and Federal levels. It is the responsibility of the training officer to develop department training standards and schedules that ensure all mandated requirements are met. All firefighters are trained at the State Certified Firefighter I Level. At the emergency medical service level, in 2007 there were 8 personnel trained and licensed at the Paramedic level (7 paid and 1 volunteer), and 17 department personnel trained and certified at the EMT level, including all paid staff.
The City of Dixon, along with the cities of Benicia, Vallejo and Fairfield, as well as Medic Ambulance Company, currently participates in a Public/Private Partnership Agreement to provide county-wide pre-hospital care. The cities provide Advanced Life Support (ALS) service, and Medic Ambulance provides ALS transportation.
The City of Dixon currently provides both Basic Life Support (BLS) service and ALS service. ALS service provides a certified paramedic who is able to diagnose illnesses or injuries, administer medications, provide cardiac monitoring, and carry out many procedures similar to those in an emergency room setting, while BLS service can utilize an Emergency Medical Technician who is able to treat illnesses or injuries, administer oxygen, and provide cardiac defibrillation.

Equipment Maintenance:
Capt. Brian Schroeder
“Constant readiness” of all equipment and personnel is essential in the effectiveness of a Fire Department. All equipment must be ready to operate at any time.
The Maintenance Division is responsible for all repairs, preventive maintenance and testing of Department equipment, apparatus and facilities. Maintenance also coordinates the testing and acceptance of new fire hydrants.  Some major maintenance items are not performed by Fire Department personnel, such as the annual certification of all ladders and breathing apparatus. Private contractors perform these tasks.
