Sonoma Valley Fire & Rescue Authority
On February 1, 2002, the City of Sonoma and Valley of the Moon Fire Protection District entered into a Joint Powers Agreement creating a public entity known as the Sonoma Valley Fire & Rescue Authority. The purpose of the Authority was to eliminate duplication of equipment, personnel and resources, control costs and provide higher levels of fire and rescue services to both communities.
Both agencies are now realizing substantial benefits to the citizens and taxpayers of the City and District by employing common equipment, resources and personnel under consolidated administration and operations.
On December 19, 2011, the City of Sonoma signed a Contract for Fire Services with the Valley of the Moon Fire Protection District.
