What We Do

Provide fire protection & emergency response services to the communities of Alleghany, Forest City and Pike City.

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

  • Become a volunteer fire fighter! Training Provided.  Both the Pike and Alleghany  Fire Departments train on Monday evenings. Location varies with some combined trainings and some individual training.  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 Pliocene Ridge CSD are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  Mailing address is 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.
