Welcome to the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District's website.  Our website will provide you with information on the programs and services that we take pride in providing to the communities of Carpinteria, Summerland and the unincorporated areas within our fire district.  We have a 84-year history dating back to our formation as a fire district in 1934.

The safety of our communities and of the firefighters that protect them is our primary mission. We measure our performance so that we can demonstrate our effectiveness and efficienties for the public. We work in partnership with you and our neighboring fire agencies to build a network that saves lives and protects against the loss of property. Our firefighters are the strength of our organization and they take great pride in caring for, protecting and serving you.

I am honored to serve as your Fire Chief.  My career includes working for both municipal and county fire departments and now a fire district, which is an independent government organization that has fire elected board members. I look forward to leading our professional organization to deliver outstanding service.

We strive for excellence in all that we do.  Please continue to visit our website and join us on Facebook. Stay informed about the activities and programs that your Fire District has to offer you. Let me know how we are doing and how we can better serve you.

Thank you for visiting our website.
