A Message From Fire Chief Darwin Base
“As Fire Chief for Oxnard City, I encourage our members to create a department recognized for excellence in the delivery of its services. We continually strive for our community’s trust by demonstrating our commitment to duty, and we persistently improve upon those services and programs provided to the residents and to the visitors of our city.
We are an “All Risk, All Hazard” fire department — meaning we will respond to the needs of the community regardless of the nature of the incident. We go beyond the process of just solving the problem; we follow through with genuine care and respect. This commitment will remain as the strong point to our services.
Internally, our culture reflects a diverse, respectful and professional atmosphere. Externally, we are a fire department that exemplifies an honorable profession. We remain a team that exhibits pride in who we are and what we do.
Our Mission Statement sums it up:
The Oxnard Fire Department is committed to providing the highest level of public safety services to our community while mitigating risks through excellent customer service, public education and community engagement.”
It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I have the honor in leading the men and women of the City of Oxnard Fire Department.” – Darwin Base
