Commitment to Exellence

UC Davis Firefighter Jacket

In 2012 as part of the UC Davis Fire Departments first strategic planning process our department created a vision, mission, and values that represent how we will serve our community, how we will treat others, and our commitment to the highest levels of performance.

Late 2017 brought the opportunity to conduct a complete overhaul of the strategic planning document, and with it, we revisited our guiding statements. The membership of the department opted to reaffirm the existing statements shown below.

These words embody who we are, "the UC Davis Fire Department Way," and are at the heart of everything we do.
