The San José Fire Department (SJFD) is committed to serving the community by protecting life, property, and the environment through prevention and response.

The City of San José was founded in 1777 and is located in the South San Francisco Bay Area. It's the tenth largest city in the U.S. and the third largest in California. SJFD serves San José’s incorporated city limits and unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County totaling around 1.2 million residents.

Responding to around 91,000 service calls each year (from 33 fire stations), SJFD is a high-volume, high-performance, and full-service fire department. In terms of critical infrastructure, SJFD is the emergency service provider for a number of high-hazard occupancies, including an international airport, a municipal airport, seven major hospitals (including three trauma centers and seven emergency departments), the SAP Center (home to the NHL's San José Sharks), San José State University (the oldest public institution of higher education on the West Coast), three super-regional malls, 108 high-rise structures, and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
