The City of Soledad has been contracting with CAL FIRE since January 2012 to provide full-time professional fire service to the City of Soledad and the Mission-Soledad Fire Protection District.  The Fire Department protects approximately 34,000 citizens within a 97 square mile response area.  Station 37 responds to over 1600 emergency calls a year.  Services are delivered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Soledad Fire Department utilizes an app called Pulsepoint to help notify residents of important information when the fire staff responding to an 911 call. The app is free to use, and will give you real-time information about car accidents, fires, medical emergencies and more.

PulsePoint Respond is a 911-connected app that can immediately inform you of emergencies occurring in your community and can request your help when CPR is needed nearby.

PulsePoint AED is a simple-to-use tool that enables you to help build the public AED registry in your community – or anywhere!
