The Jackson Fire Department is a  full-time and volunteer organization providing fire protection and suppression  and emergency response to the residents of Jackson and surrounding  areas.   Emergency assistance is provided for all incidents including vehicle, residential, commercial and industrial situations where prompt delivery of emergency fire and/or medical services is needed.

Auto ExtractionProtective services include inspection ofcommercial,  industrial, and residential buildings, and enforcement of applicable codes.  The Department also provides training for  volunteers in the area of fire suppression, rescues, and a wide variety of  techniques and applications which accompany these skilled procedures.  The Fire Department, through agreements with  the Amador County Fire Protection District (AFPD) and other entities, provides  automatic and mutual aid response to areas outside Jackson City limits.

Measure M was approved by voters on  November 4, 2008.  The revenue generated by this measure has enabled the City to bring on full-time firefighters to supplement the volunteers.  The  half-percent sales tax went into effect on April 1, 2009.
