The Ripon Professional Firefighters Association is the union of full-time, professional firefighters who are employed by the Ripon Consolidated Fire District, serving the residents of the City of Ripon and the surrounding rural area of Ripon. 

Members of the RPFA Local 3880 are all trained firefighters, and have capabilities on a variety of areas. These include structural firefighting, wildland firefighting, medical care at the EMT and Paramedic level, water rescue, trench rescue, low/high angle rescue, hazardous materials, collapse rescue, vehicle extrication, fire prevention, and much more. 

Our ranks include Firefighter/EMT or Paramedic, Engineer, Captain and Battalion Chief.

Our members serve the community outside of their daily firefighting work through community programs organized or supported by RPFA. These programs include Fill The Boot for Burns(Firefighters Burn Institute), Love Ripon, Ripon Run and much more. 

The Ripon Fire District was founded in 1921. It is an independent California Special District organized for the purpose of providing fire protection services, and is governed by its own Board of Directors elected by the residents of the District. We are not connected to, or a part of, the City of Ripon in any way, and do not receive any funding from the city, other than a contract for hazardous materials response. Our roots are as a volunteer department, but as less people are available to commit the time and training required, we have transitioned to a combination department, utilizing both paid and volunteer/reserve personnel to accomplish our mission.

Our Mission Statement is to "protect all the citizens within the Fire District from injury and loss due to natural and man-made disasters." This will be accomplished by providing highly-trained and adequately-equipped emergency personnel to respond to incidents of fire, medical, and other emergencies."

Our Motto: "Protecting What's Important..."
