"Our Mission: We, the El Dorado Hills Fire Department, exist to serve and protect the Community through emergency management."

Public Safety & Education

Prevention Month 3El Dorado Hills Fire Department strongly believes in Public Safety and Education.  We participate in several different events throughout the year to help educate our community about fire safety such as, Fire Prevention Month at the local schools, Smoke Detector Give-Away, Junior Firefighter Program, Every 15 Minutes and more.

Please select from the menu at left to learn more about safety and view educational flyers.

The El Dorado Hills Fire Department wishes the community a great Fall season!  Along with the change of the season comes an inherent danger when out enjoying Halloween.  Please see the following links for Halloween Safety.

All haunted houses held in buildings other than residential houses are subject to the El Dorado County Regional Fire Protection Standards F-001. Permits are required by the Fire Department at least two (2) weeks prior to the event. Please follow this link for more information.




Below is a list of some of the El Dorado Hills Fire Department Protection Standards:

  • The address numbers shall be of a size of not less than four inches in height on a contrasting color background and shall be clearly visible from the address roadway.
  • The address numbers shall be permanently posted at each driveway entrance and shall be visible from both directions of travel along the road.
  • The address numbers may be mounted on the home only if the distance from the road to the home does not exceed 100 feet and all the other requirements are met.


Your address must be clearly visible on the curb, mailbox, sign, or home and meet the requirements above.  Check to make sure your address is not hidden with overgrowth or illegible due to faded paint.  Don’t take the chance that safety personnel cannot find you in an emergency!


Please keep your family safe by complying with the standards above.  Thank you for your cooperation in making El Dorado Hills a safer place to live.
