Seniors Assisting Fire Effort

Current and Past News Letters
On March 20, 2006, the Manteca City Council approved the formation of a fire department auxiliary group known as SAFE for Seniors Assisting Fire Effort. Manteca's SAFE program is affiliated with Fire Corps which is a nationwide partner program of the federal program known as Citizen Corps. These programs are designed to provide citizen advocates with a mechanism to support their local governments through a donation of time and talent.

SAFE focuses on unique areas of non-operational support that are critical to the Manteca Fire Department's mission. SAFE is not a Volunteer Firefighter program. Instead, it is a variety of important and creative projects in which almost anyone can actively participate. Possible volunteer activities include accounting, clerical support, construction, engineering, fundraising, mechanical repairs, public affairs, grant writing, dispatch duties, computer support, building maintenance and public safety education.

SAFE creates the connection between the fire department and the community, providing a vehicle for citizens to find out more about city government and emergency services in Manteca. There are many necessary tasks that can be performed by citizens from our community in the fire service every day. The list is endless, bound only by your imagination. So check out SAFE and become part of the Team today
