Julian Fire Plugs is an all-volunteer non-profit corporation that coordinates fundraising for

Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District

Julian Fire Plugs is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that coordinates fundraising and volunteer efforts in support of the Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District (JCFPD). We need your help and are asking for donations to prevent the loss of Julian’s historic and independent fire department.

JCFPD’s future is at risk due to the recent withdrawal of financial support by San Diego County. The County’s goal is the dissolution of JCFPD, its replacement with contract fire fighters, and assimilation of all its assets (millions of dollars in land and equipment) which JCFPD and the Julian community have accumulated over decades of operation. More details about this are found at

Even though Julian has a new fire station, a full complement of experienced volunteers and youthful reserves, and a community that values and supports its brave firefighters, JCFPD is now in jeopardy.

In November 2018, Julian residents will vote on an Initiative to increase the annual Benefit Fee passed in 1984, from $50 to $200 per year. Revenue derived from the Initiative will provide sufficient income to maintain an independent volunteer fire department and raise the level of service provided to our community. If successful, increased revenue will not begin coming into the coffers until the end of 2019. Cash reserves will help the fire department survive this dry spell, but revenue will be less than prior years. Thus, we need your help so that we can promote this Initiative, insure it passes and save our volunteer fire department.
