Kirk Waters, Fire Chief
Everyone who becomes a firefighter has their reasons. Some come to it by family, others by mission. But we all believe doing our job at the highest level makes a powerful difference in people’s lives every day.
Manteca is known to some as “The Family City.” The name is a small but powerful reminder of our connection and commitment to each other. We, the men and women of the Manteca Fire Department, are honored to serve those families, and we’re ready to do so all day, every day, any time we’re called.
Much of what our firefighters do on a daily basis is undramatic. Physical training, continual learning, equipment maintenance, fire prevention and public education don’t capture headlines. Our people carry out these initiatives because they are the foundation upon which we stand to offer the best protection to life and property when emergencies arise.
On behalf of the Manteca Fire Department, I thank you for your trust, and promise we will continue striving to earn it.
