The Sutter Creek Volunteer Fire Department (SCVFD), Sutter Creek Fire District (SCFD) and the City of Amador City have recently completed the rehab and development of the old Amador City fire station into a small museum to house the Amador City 1939 Dodge fire truck that was built in Sutter Creek. Along with the fire truck, we are currently housing other early fire fighting equipment and we have developed wall displays related to the fire history of Amador City.

This project is just one of several that the SCVFD/SCFD has undertaken in the past ten years since their history program was begun in 2006. During this time, SCVFD/SCFD has rebuilt and displayed several pieces of vintage fire fighting equipment; rehabbed and reequipped the Amador City fire truck, relocated Sutter Creek’s first fire bell to the Main Fire Station and placed a historic marker related to the bell, and produced a broadsheet style history overview of the SCVFD/SCFD.
