Fire Safety

A Fire Safety Message from the Stockton Fire Department

The primary concern of the Stockton Fire Department is safety for everyone, including our children with special needs. The Stockton Fire Department has a special procedure that is intended to provide an extra measure of safety for individuals with special needs. Parents are encouraged to complete and submit a Residential Premise History. This form will provide added information and security for field units who may need to respond to an emergency or other call from your home, in identifying and/or assisting you or your child. It is essential that the location of your child with special needs is known by the first responding unit so they can concentrate their life saving efforts on the area that can make the biggest impact and resolution of the emergency.

To complete your Residential Premise History these steps must be taken:

  1. Go to the Stockton Fire Department Web site:
  2. Under the Fire Prevention section, click the Educational Material link.
  3. Scroll down to the 5th link under Fire Safety for Adults – Fire and Safety for People with Disabilities. Click on the link.
  4. Print and fill out in its entirety, the sixth link in that section, Residential Premise History Form.
  5. Mail residential Premise History Form to:

    City Hall/Stockton Fire Department
    425 N. El Dorado Street
    Stockton, CA 95203

This information will expire in one year from entry date.


Families are encouraged to contact their local fire department to see if they have a Residential Premise History form. If they don't have a form, but are interested in having that same type of information on file, you can download FRN's Residential Premise History form and submit it to your fire department. FRN created this form with input from fire officials.
