  • HISTORY | No So Co Fire

    SERVICE AREA MAP MISSION & VALUES HISTORY STAFF BOARD HISTORY The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District had its beginnings in 1904, when twenty-four citizens signed the roster as volunteer firemen and A. Thompson was unanimously selected as the Fire Chief. The committee on apparatus was instructed to purchase fifty feet of hose and two nozzles. B.W. Feldmeyer offered to give space for the erection of a hose cart house at the rear of his brick building and Mr. Thompson was instructed to begin construction of a hose cart immediately. Early equipment consisted of two hand pulled chemical carts and a hand pulled hose reel. One of the chemical carts is still in the possession of the fire department and is on display at the Geyserville Fire Station. The first fire station was a small building erected at the corner of Geyserville Ave and Hwy 128. It had a bell on a tower, which was rung to call the volunteers in case of a fire. That same bell can still be seen on display at Geyserville Fire Station. In 1920, Harold Sullivan became the fire chief; he later went on to be the chief in Healdsburg for many years. In the mid-1920s the May Day festival was started at the Hoffman Grove for the purpose of raising funds to purchase a fire engine. A Model A chassis for the first engine was purchased in about 1931. The body of the engine was built at A. Lampson & Sons Garage by J.L. Chittenden, Everett Lampson, J.B. Dickson, Aldo Lombardi and others. The first firehouse for that engine was Oscar Teaby’s blacksmith shop next to the Odd Fellows Hall. With the advent of motorized fire apparatus, the Geyserville volunteers saw their area expand south to Lytton, east to include the rest of the Alexander Valley, north to Asti and west to cover the upper half of the Dry Creek Valley. The 1950s saw several major changes in the Department. In 1950 a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce was held to reorganize the department, add more members, and to elect a Board of Commissioners. Leo Beers was elected Chief, L.C. Smith and Leslie Meyer assistant chiefs, and Everett Lampson, Bates Dickson, Harvy Rose and J.L. Chittenden commissioners. In 1953 the Model A engine and $500 was traded for a 1941 Ford Navy Crash Truck from the King City Naval Air Station. This engine was in-service until the early 1990s. In 1958 a site for a new fire station in Geyserville was purchased from George Remmel. Plans were drawn up and a cinder block structure was built in the mid-1960s with volunteer labor. A second building behind the station was built in 1989. In 1975 the Geyserville Volunteer Fire Department took in the boundaries of the Alexander Valley School District and formed the Alexander Valley Division of the Geyserville Volunteer Fire Department. Though it was part of the Geyserville Volunteer Fire Department, the Alexander Valley Division had its own fire chief and roster of volunteers. Eugene Saini was the Fire Chief. The fire station was in Russel Greene’s barn across from the Alexander Valley school and was later moved to Truman Clark’s property at the intersection of Highway 128 and Alexander Valley Road. The siren was on top of Goodyear’s hay barn. Alexander Valley Division’s first engine was a 1956 International pumper-taker from Ventura County which held 1400 gallons of water. It was destroyed in 1976 in a fire-related accident on Ida Clayton Road that also injured firefighter Dale Goode. The second apparatus was a 1941 Ford truck from Frank Palmer and Eddie Demoscene. In 1989, after many years of auctions and fundraisers, the Andrews Fire House was built and dedicated near the intersection of Highway 128 and Alexander Valley Road, where it stands today. To report an emergency, there were four phones- Lampson’s Tractor, Mickey’s Bar, and the residences of both Carrie Robertson and Lucille Rose. After receiving report of an emergency, the siren would be activated to alert the volunteers. In 1996 the Geyserville Volunteer Fire Department became the Geyserville Fire Protection District. The first District board or directors consisted of Paul Bernier, Tim Barnard, Robert Stewart, Michael Pigoni, and Fred Peterson. Dean Turbeville was the Fire Chief and Eugene Saini became Assistant Chief. A third fire station, the Dry Creek Valley Fire Station, was built in 2001. In 2004, after purchasing additional land adjoining the fire station, the District began construction of a new 12,000 square foot fire station in Geyserville. In September 2005 construction was complete on the current Geyserville Fire Station. In 2018 the District started a Wildland Fuels Crew with grant money to reduce wildfire risk by reducing vegetation alongside roadways. In 2019 the District changed its name to Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District and annexed the Knights Valley Fire Company. That same year, three full-time firefighters were hired to bring year-round staffing up to two. FIRE CHIEFS 1904 - ? A. Thompson 1920 - 1931 Howard Sullivan 1931 - 1950 J.

  • GVFA | No So Co Fire

    THE GEYSERVILLE VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER'S ASSOCIATION (GVFA) The Geyserville Volunteer Firefighters' Association (GVFA) [name update in progress] is made up mostly of current members and a few past members of the Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District staff. The GVFA’s primary responsibility is to raise money to buy equipment and supplies to increase the level of service that the Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District can provide. The GVFA differs from the Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District in that the GFVA is a non-profit organization run by volunteers who raise money through fundraisers. The GVFA is a 501(c)(3) with the federal tax identification number 23-7054738. The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District is a special district that receives a portion of property taxes every year. The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District uses that tax money to run the fire department. The Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District's income is limited to the annual tax revenue it receives. The GVFA raises money to support the Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District's goal of providing the best level of service possible. Before the Geyserville Fire Department became a fire protection district in 1996, all of the expenses of running the fire department were paid for by the GVFA. Since becoming a fire district the GVFA has been able to spend its money on more than just the basics. Now the GVFA serves the communities of Franz Valley, Knights Valley, Geyserville, Dry Creek Valley, and Alexander Valley. The GVFA has purchased rescue equipment and Automated External Defibrillators (used to jump start your heart if it stops). In 2001 the Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District opened a fire station on Dry Creek Road. This fire station was paid for by your donations and was built mostly with donated labor. In 2004 the Northern Sonoma County Fire Protection District took delivery of Engine 6181. The New Fire Engine, which cost $280,000 was paid for by donations to the GVFA. ​ To donate, please mail cash or check to the GVFA, PO Box 1042, Geyserville, CA 95441. Donations are tax deductible. ​ ​ ​
