Who We Are 

Composed of 51 dedicated men and women, the Lodi Fire Department is an all-hazard, full-service agency. We proudly provide fire protection, medical aid, rescue, hazardous materials response, and a variety of other services to the public. 

Who We Serve

We serve the City of Lodi, which has a population of 66,500 people in a geographic area of 13.86 square miles. The City of Lodi is a diverse community that incorporates suburban residential properties, a beautiful historic downtown corridor, commercial and industrial properties, and many open spaces for recreation which includes Lodi Lake and the Mokelumne River.  

What We Do

Lodi’s services are built around our mission to provide life, property, and environmental protection through prevention, education, and mitigation services delivered with pride and integrity. 

Prevention and Education

Providing safety involves planning, prevention, and education to ensure that our citizens and communities can protect their homes, property, and businesses against fire. Thorough knowledge of risk mitigation and fire prevention techniques allows LFD to build a foundation of safe practices. This includes fire code and regulation enforcement, plan reviews, apartment and business inspections.


We have 4 strategically placed fire stations to serve the population. Our firefighters are trained to provide the highest level of firefighting, rescue, and emergency medical care. In addition to fighting fires, we respond to medical emergencies, traffic accidents, land and water rescues, hazardous materials calls, environmental hazards, and a variety of public service requests.


We make it a priority to communicate with the public through our public information officer, which ensures that information is disseminated to the public for educational purposes and during emergencies, to our fire prevention counters, which help people determine how to protect their homes, property and businesses against fire.
