The history of the Victorville Fire Department dates back to 1926 when the Victorville County Fire Protection District was established. In 1930, the Victorville Volunteer Fire Department was established. In 1976, approximately 14 years after Victorville was incorporated, control of the Victorville Fire Protection District was assumed by the City of Victorville. In March 2019, the City of Victorville re-established its Fire Department after contracting the fire services for 10 years.
The Victorville Fire Department actively operates out of four Fire Stations. The Department operates a fleet of four Medic Engines, one Medic Truck, and one Medic Squad. The Department is currently led by Fire Chief Armstrong and is staffed with Operational Division Fire Chief Stout, three Battalion Chiefs, and a field crew of 51.
