The Apple Valley Fire Protection District, and Southern California firefighters are celebrating the 27th year of the Spark of Love Toy Drive! Firefighters and Marines will be joining together to collect and distribute new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for underserved children and teens in San Bernardino county. Over the past 27 years, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected and distributed more than nine million toys.
Our goal is to exceed last year’s collection of over 500,000 toys.
The 2019 Spark of Love Toy Drive will run from
Monday, November 6th through Tuesday, December 23th.
We will be collecting toys at all 5 fire stations in Apple Valley.

Smoke Alarms Recalled
Two Alarms By Universal Security Instruments Require Inspections
Universal Security Instruments in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall of smoke alarm model numbers MI3050S and MI3050SB. Consumers owning these two devices should immediately inspect their alarms to determine if it will activate appropriately.
Defensible Space, Do You Have It?
The definition of defensible space is: the required space between a structure (home, detached garage, outbuildings, etc.) and the wildland area that, under normal conditions, creates a sufficient buffer to slow or halt the spread of a wildland fire to a structure. Defensible space protects the structure from igniting due to direct flame or radiant heat. It is essential for structure survivability during wildland fire conditions and equally important for the protection of firefighters defending your home/property.
Offices will be closed.
