Apple Valley Fire Protection District

Commitment to Service Excellence.

Fire Chief

James "Buddy" Peratt

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. It is truly an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to serve the citizens and community of Apple Valley.

As a long-time resident of Apple Valley, I have deep roots in this community. I am proud to say that I am a graduate of both Apple Valley Middle School and Apple Valley High School, which has allowed me to develop a strong connection with the people and the place I call home.

My journey in the Fire service began in 1997 when I joined the Apple Valley Fire Protection District as a dedicated volunteer Fire Inspector. However, my career path took me on a detour for a period of time as I gained valuable experience and knowledge with other esteemed organizations such as the San Bernardino County Fire, Fort Irwin Fire, and the City of Victorville Fire Department. It is important to note that my passion for serving this community never wavered, and in 2008, I returned to the Apple Valley Fire Protection District where I have been wholeheartedly committed to serving the people of Apple Valley ever since.

Apple Valley is not just a place to work, but a place to call home. It is a vibrant and close-knit community that offers a plethora of opportunities for personal and professional growth. Our Fire District is deeply rooted in the belief that our community is at the heart of everything we do. We hold our Community Core Values dear, understanding that it is the people of Apple Valley who inspire us and drive our mission to protect and serve.

By choosing Apple Valley, you are choosing to be a part of a community that values unity, compassion, and excellence. We are dedicated to ensuring the safety and well-being of every individual who calls Apple Valley home.

Once again, thank you for your interest in our Fire District. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and the community of Apple Valley.
