The mission of the Pinole Fire Department is to provide protection of life, property and the environment from the effects of fires, medical emergencies and hazards. We will engage the community in our mission through progressive community outreach.
The members of the Pinole Fire Department take pride in our commitment to professional service by maintaining our skills, knowledge and abilities. All members of the Department will conduct themselves in an ethical manner, conforming to moral standard of right versus wrong and by treating each other and the people we serve with honesty and service above self.
To Our Fire Fighters
To all under my leadership, I will continue to carry and instill the following principles and values.
A code of personal integrity. Honor guides those who do the right thing when no one is looking. It is not only your duty, but also a distinction, as those who possess honor are held in honor. We are expected to act responsibly in a manner befitting the title and position we have earned.
When other principles are tested, it is courage that prevents us from crumbling. It is not ignoring fear, but being stronger than fear. It is there when times are the toughest and when difficult decisions have to be made.
Commitment is the spirit of determination found in every Fire Fighter. It is what compels Fire Fighters to continue on when others quit. It measures and proves one’s desire, dedication and faithfulness to our oath of service.
