Mountain View Fire Department
“We are rated as a Class 1 Fire Department, the only one in the County and one of the few in the State, and I say
that is not because of our stations, apparatus, water supply, tools and equipment but because we have Class 1
employees in the Mountain View Fire Department.” - Fire Chief Juan Diaz
