Cachagua Fire provides fire suppression and emergency medical services to the rural and mountainous areas at the eastern end of Carmel Valley, known as the Cachagua area. The Cachagua Fire Protection District was formed on October 12, 1993 at the request of community residents who wanted to create an agency that could levy an assessment to support the operation of the existing volunteer fire company.
The District comprises approximately 110 square miles of territory and serves over 1,000 residents. A three-member elected Board of Directors governs the District, and 29 active members volunteer to provide fire suppression and emergency medical services. A benefit assessment is the primary source of funding for the District.
