The Ventura County Professional Firefighters Association is the organization that represents all Firefighters in the Ventura County Fire Protection District (VCFD) through the rank of Captain. VCPFA members are dedicated to providing the highest level of professional firefighting and rescue services. This goal is achieved through the aggressive pursuit of high-quality training, equipment, and staffing levels.
VCPFA members provide all-risk firefighting and rescue services including Structural Firefighting, Emergency Medical Services with EMT’s and Advanced Life Support (ALS) Paramedics, Vehicle Extrication, Technical rope rescue, Hazardous Materials (Hazmat), Urban Search and Rescue (USAR), Water Rescue, and Wildland Firefighting in a large urban interface area. In addition to providing these services in Ventura County, VCPFA members assist throughout California and the Western United States through participation in the mutual aid response system.
To meet these demanding challenges VCPFA seeks the most highly qualified and motivated fire/rescue professionals through the negotiation of competitive wage and benefits packages. We endeavor to educate policymakers and the community to the unique needs of firefighters and the fire rescue service.
In addition to fire and rescue work, VCPFA members further participate in their community through VCPFA charities, which raises and donates tens of thousands of dollars each year to local charities. VCPFA members donate both their time and money to assist community members in their time of need.
The members of the VCPFA are proud to serve the citizens of Ventura County. We consider it a privilege. Our commitment is that we will always be there when needed with the best qualified, trained and equipped Firefighters. We deeply appreciate your support.
