Public Safety & Fire Services
Law Enforcement Services
The Town has contracted with the Napa County Sheriff's Office to provide law enforcement services to the Town since incorporation on February 4, 1965. In 1997, at the town's request, those services were increased to include three dedicated personnel, 1 sergeant (who acts as a department head and patrol supervisor) and 3 patrol deputies. These four dedicated positions are further supported by the full resources of the Napa County Sheriff's Office and town staff.
Fire & Emergency Medical Services
The Town of Yountville provides the community with fire protection and emergency medical services through a contract for services with the Napa County/CALFIRE Department. The Fire Department is responsible for protecting life and property from the hazards of fire, hazardous materials incidents, and assisting in emergency medical incidents. The department also provides the Town of Yountville with an effective fire suppression force and fire prevention, inspection, and education organization. The current contract is effective from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019.
Napa Sheriff's Office & Cal Fire Encourage Residents to Sign up for Nixle
Several Napa County agencies are using Nixle to keep the public informed of traffic advisories, public safety emergencies, crime trends, safety tips, as well as department-sponsored events. As flood season approaches, this service will be used to advise the public of road closures, hazardous situations, and recommendations. Don't miss out on this "real-time" opportunity to stay informed!
Nixle is a community information service provider built exclusively to provide secure and reliable communications. The Napa Police Department, Napa City Fire, CHP, County Roads, and the Sheriff's Office are all participating agencies. This means that representatives from each agency are able to provide information to members of the community who have chosen to receive messages from us.
You choose how you want to receive your information, whether by text message over your mobile device, through emails, or through web access. Text messages are short and do not contain photos. Emails contain more information and you can click on the Nixle link of the email to view any attached photos.
After you register, you can then select what type of information you want to receive and from whom. Types are Alerts (many would refer to this as an emergency type alert), Advisories (less urgent need-to-know information), Community Information (day-to-day neighborhood to community-level information), and Traffic.
Again, this service is completely free. Text notifications are subject to text charges, based upon the subscriber's cellular phone contract. However, you may choose not to receive text messages, and select email only.
Sign up now and encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to take advantage of this great opportunity. Register and learn more about Nixle. You may also contact Captain Tracey Stuart at the Sheriff's Office with any questions at 253-4475.
