Chief’s Message

Welcome to the South Placer Fire Protection District, where our mission is to provide exceptional service to our communities. As you navigate our website, you can explore our history, services, and the proud traditions of this organization, with roots dating back to 1952. Our goal is to ensure that our communities of Granite Bay, Loomis, and neighboring areas of Placer and Sacramento County find what they need, and the information is current, informative, and educational.


South Placer Fire District is an all-hazards/all-risk organization that prides itself on service to the community and a diligent work effort. Our pride in service delivery is only matched by our enthusiasm for ensuring we are prepared to meet the community’s changing needs. Whether responding to a medical aid in one of our advanced life support ambulances, battling a wildland fire in the urban interface area, or working with our schools and neighborhoods to make sure everyone is fire safe, it is our passion to ensure we are ready, willing and able to meet the need. We accomplish that level of readiness through continuous training and education that keeps your firefighters at the top of their game. Our strength is our personnel who hold a steadfast commitment to excellence.


I am grateful to serve as your Fire Chief and lead the men and women of the District. We will forever be there for you in your time of need serving with respect, integrity, accountability, and excellence in action.

Fire Chief Mark Duerr
