All Stockton firehouses are considered to be a safe place where anyone can go to escape a threatening environment. Children have always considered firefighters their friends, and the program capitalizes on that tradition. The program includes a safe haven for anyone who is in need of help.
Each fire station is a place where a person can find a temporary safe environment. No one will be turned away from any fire station when he or she is in crisis.
Bright yellow signs designating a "Safe Station" are posted at each fire station to remind us that a fire station is a haven of safety.
Working with several existing public agencies, the Stockton Fire Department offers a new beginning by providing a safe place to be at and safe people to be around.
Although firefighters have daily inspection and emergency duties that require them to be absent from the fire station for limited periods, they will always return. This is where you can find the nearest fire station:
