About the Department
The Rio Felix Fire Department is also located in the Sacramento Mountains around the Rio Felix River. It was originally a substation of the Dunken Volunteer Fire Department. In order to benefit both communities, they decided to split the department. On October 16, 1989, Rio Felix was recognized by ISO Commercial Risk Services Inc. as an independent fire district.
In 2010, the department constructed an addition to their original station that allowed them the space needed to store a 3,000-gallon tanker that was needed in order to improve their fire protection capabilities. The new addition also has a training room and a kitchenette area.
