What We Do

We also work cooperatively with neighboring jurisdictions in Santa Fe County, City of Rio Rancho, Village of Corrales, Town of Bernalillo, Bernalillo County and City of Albuquerque to fight wild land fires and conduct rescue operations. If you need the Sandoval County Fire Department we’ll be there for you.
