After great expectations, we had anticipated that the 2021 Home Winemakers Classic would be back at the CIA at Copia as in year's past. However, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we, like so many others, had to cancel our in-person event for 2021. Good news is that we will have a virtual event on July 17 that will include the Home W
After great expectations, we had anticipated that the 2021 Home Winemakers Classic would be back at the CIA at Copia as in year's past. However, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we, like so many others, had to cancel our in-person event for 2021. Good news is that we will have a virtual event on July 17 that will include the Home Winemaker wine judging results, the winner of the raffle prizes, and much more. Please go to: https://homewinemakersclassic.com/ for more information. This great home town event now supports the Mt. Veeder Fire Safe Council with its fire prevention and education projects. These projects directly support the Dry Creek-Lokoya Volunteer Fire Company as well.
Serve and be able to give back to the citizens of Napa County, and California.
As a Firefighter you’ll respond to:
Become an EMT or Paramedic.
2nd and 3rd Saturdays of each month, 9 AM-2PM.
Various mandatory and voluntary classes all year long to advance from Firefighter level.
When the Dry Creek-Lokoya Volunteer Fire Department (DCL) was formed back in the 1940's, all of the members, both men and women, lived in the response area. As demographics have changed, very few members still live "On the Hill" or in the immediate response area.
Today, most members live nearby within the Napa City limits and respond to calls both within our response area and to the adjoining volunteer departments, Carneros and Soda Canyon, as well as the City of Napa Fire Department.
When the fire department was formed in the 1940's, it was common to call the organization a fire department. DCL joined the Napa County Fire Department in the 1970's. Napa County discovered that DCL had never registered as a "fire department" with the state or the county. As part of Napa County Fire Department (NCFD) we became NCFD Station 16. NCFD has a paid fire chief who is also a member of CalFire. This is currently Chief Barry Biermann.
The firefighting portion of the old DCL became a volunteer fire company and is legally recognized as such. The Dry Creek-Lokoya Fire Company has its own volunteer fire chief, currently Volunteer Chief Gary Green.
The DCL Fire Department is now the legally financial portion of the fire company and supports the firefighters by holding an annual fundraiser, the Home Winemakers Classic (see more to your right). The DCL Fire Department is responsible for all financial reports. Under the direction of the DCL Fire Department are two other committees, the Home Winemakers Classic and the Mt. Veeder Fire Safe Council. You may see more at their websites.
Email Chief Van Oeveren at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on any of the following events.
The Dry Creek-Lokoya Board of Directors meetings are held immediately following training on either the 2nd or 3rd Saturday of each month at the fire station located at:

The Napa County Fire Department asks each of the nine volunteer departments to select an individual that supports
NCFD and the local fire company as well. This year, Firefighter Dylan Brusstar was selected to represent
the Dry Creek-Lokoya firefighters. Dylan is the first to arrive and the last to leave paying attention to details!
He exemplifies the DCL in Dry Creek-Lokoya, Dedication, Commitment, Loyality.
Volunteer fire chief Robert Haggard was well known to the community and to his firefighters as a no nonsense,
honest, and upstanding citizen. After a long illness, Chief Haggard passed away. In his memory, we have
established this award that is given annually to the firefighter that most exemplifies the traits of former Chief
Robert Haggard, Honor, Leadership, Community Service. This year's award went to Firefighter Joseph
Nordlinger. Joseph is also the chair for the Mt. Veeder Fire Safe Council. The Mt. Veeder Fire Safe Council
has received an excess of $1.5 million dollars for fire prevention projects within the Dry Creek-Lokoya VFD
response area. The work of the Mt. Veeder Fire Safe Council directly supports the efforts of the fire
department. A well deserved award for an extremely hard working firefighter!
THE SANTA ROSE JUNIOR COLLEGE FF 1 ACADEMY IS ONE OF THE BEST IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.
