Welcome to the Loma Rica / Browns Valley Fire Department

This web site has been established by the Loma Rica / Browns Valley Community Services District to provide information to the residents of our District.
The Loma Rica / Browns Valley Community Services District was established in 1984 by a vote of the District's residents for the sole purpose of providing fire, rescue and medical aid service to the almost 100 square mile area constituting the Loma Rica and Browns Valley communities.
The District is an independent government agency (Special District) and as such, receives its operational revenue from a direct assessment levied on District residents and businesses. The County of Yuba does not provide fire service or revenue for fire service.

In 2019, after years of fiscal management and assistance from Yuba County Building Department, the project was successfully bid. Construction was started in early May by Frank Webb Construction. With the addition of this Fire Station the District hopes to provide a more efficient response time and decrease in insurance rates to its citizens living near the fire station.

Volunteer Recruitment

The Loma Rica/Browns Valley Fire Department is always seeking qualified applicants who have the desire to help their community as a volunteer firefighter. For more information please visit the station and talk with the Duty Captain or the Chief. The District is also looking for volunteers to assist the governing board of directors.  If you have the time and wish to help, we would enjoy speaking with you.  For more information, you may call the District at (530) 741-0755 or you can always email us at:  LRBVCSD@lrbvfire.org


    The County of Yuba does not provide fire service to its residents. All fire departments within the county are independent entities and, except for those agencies in existence prior to the passage of Proposition 13 in the late 1970's, must be funded by a direct assessment imposed on the residents residing within each independent district

    The District Board of Directors holds a monthly business / operations meeting the third Monday of each month. The meetings are open to the public and all residents are invited to attend. Agendas are posted throughout the community and on this website. The meetings begin at 7:00 pm and are held at the Bi-agency fire station located at 11485 Loma Rica Road, Loma Rica.
