In 2010, owners established an excellent private fire company on the Hollister Ranch at Parcel 89: Hollister Ranch Fire Co. Many owners participate in the Hollister Ranch Volunteer Fire Department. Additionally relatively new Santa Barbara County fire station is located less than a mile from the Highway 101 turnoff at Gaviota.

The Hollister Ranch has been preserved in its natural and unspoiled state since 1866. The land has a rich variety of rugged coastal and pastoral environments with diverse flora and fauna as well as a world renowned coastline. We have a collective responsibility to protect and preserve our environment.

FSTI serves as the third party administrator for The Hollister Ranch Fire Company and Training Center. Hollister Ranch employees have completed the National Wildland Coordination Group 310-1 basic wildland fire fighter training and are now working on advanced instruction. In addition, all employees and over half of the residents have been trained in basic CPR/AED training with six AED’s now in service.

During a small 2020 brush fire on the far east end of the HR, a SBCFD firefighter rescued a fawn.
