WHO WE ARE

The Sutter Creek Fire History Projects were started in 2005 by the Sutter Creek Fire District (SCFD) and the Sutter Creek Volunteer Fire Department (SCVFD) to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Sutter Creek Fire District. The initial project was to research and develop a written/graphic history of the organizations’ service to Sutter Creek and Amador County. Additionally, the SCFD/SCVFD has rebuilt and displayed several pieces of vintage fire fighting equipment; rehabbed and re-equipped the Amador City 1939 Dodge fire truck for display in the old Amador City firehouse which has been developed as a fire museum and relocated the first Sutter Creek fire bell to the Main Fire Station with a historic marker related to the bell.

OUR MISSION

The projects focus on the volunteer aspects of the local fire department organizations that bound the members together, the social aspects of the groups and their service to the community.

The Sutter Creek Fire History Projects research, preserve, recreate and display the local fire and fire department history, and also act as tourist attractions for Sutter Creek and Amador County as a whole. The project focuses on the volunteer aspects of the local fire department organizations that bound the members together, the social aspects of the groups and their service to the community.
