FAITHFULNESS. INTEGRITY. RESPECT. EXCELLENCE.

A District of Distinction

The Chino Valley Fire District was the first fire district in California to earn accreditation as a district of distinction in 2008.  In 2017, the Fire District became the first fire district in the state to receive the District of Distinction Platinum Level.
