As an all-hazards, full service fire and emergency medical service provider, Golder Ranch offers a wide variety of emergency response capabilities. Aside from the fire engines and ambulances that most are familiar with, Golder Ranch places mobile water supply trucks, or Water Tenders, strategically throughout the District to assist firefighting activities in areas with poor hydrant coverage.

Golder Ranch also maintains special operations teams in the areas of Hazardous Materials, Technical Rescue, and Wildland Firefighting. Personnel in these areas of expertise receive additional training and attend monthly drills to maintain skill proficiency.
