This resource is available for viewing
This project is a direct result of the desire of Fire Chief Robert A. Powell, the fourth paid Fire Chief of the Vacaville Fire Department, to have accumulated in one place the most accurate and complete history of the Department possible. Several sources of information were used in researching this work. The majority of the information came, however, from three sources: Vacaville's history book entitled "Vacavllle, the Herltage of a California Communlty" by Ronald H. Limbaugh and Walter A. Payne. published in 1978, microfilmed copies of the Vacaville Reporter from 1883 to the present, and minutes of the Fire Department meetings, which date back to 1902.
