Your Fire Department could use some help!  There are many ways to get involved.

Alleghany meets at Station 2 in the County Yard at 6pm and Pike meets at the Pike City Firehouse at 7pm. To become a volunteer, show up at your firehouse on Monday eve. email: for more info.
  • Dispatchers are also needed and this can be done from home.   Contact Downieville Fire District if you are interested 289-3333.
  • Donations to the AVFD Auxiliary, PCVFD Auxiliary AND Pliocene Ridge CSD are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  Mailing addresses are listed on the contact page.  Please consider making a donation today!
  •  Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are needed.
  • Our ability to transport patients is at risk due to a shortage of EMTs .
  •  Downieville Fire provides the ambulance that is housed in Alleghany but it cannot roll without an EMT on board.
  • There are other volunteer opportunities that do not require being a first-responder.
