Escalon Fire District was formed in 1982 with the consolidation of the Escalon Rural County Fire Protection District and the Escalon Fire Protection District. Both fire districts operated from one fire station located near the City center and were volunteer fire districts. The Consolidated District is a combination fire district with both paid and on-call volunteers. The district’s service boundary is approximately 64 square miles and covers the southeastern portion of the county, south of Dodds Road and east of Carrolton Road to the county boundary on the east and south. The District serves the City of Escalon and the surrounding unincorporated county mainly designated for agriculture.
