The Bakersfield Fire Department was formally established on May 13, 1877 as the official Fire Department of the City of Bakersfield. The Department has been in continual operation since that inception date, is proud to now celebrate its 135th year of service to the community, and would like to offer a well-deserved thank-you to the citizens of Bakersfield for their continued support.
The men and women of the BFD are proud and honored to be part of a tradition of City Fire service that began over 135 years ago, and look forward to carrying out their mission in this century as “Bakersfield’s Firefighters.”
