As your Local Firefighters, we provide fire, emergency medical services, and mutual firefighting aid to nearly one million people across 304 square miles. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of your family, home, or business.
Our communities present unique firefighting and emergency response challenges, including a mixture of suburban, small town, quasi-rural and rural communities and proximity to an oil refinery, freeways, a railway, foothills, and open spaces. Ongoing drought conditions and unpredictable weather patterns mean we should not only maintain, but dramatically improve effective response to emergencies or catastrophic incidents. Just this past 4th of July weekend, over 50 fires erupted here in Contra Costa County.
To this end, three of your local County Fire Districts have joined forces to review combining our efforts to maintain, protect and enhance local fire protection, emergency medical services, and the fast 911 response times we all rely on – with no impact to or additional costs to taxpayers.
The Contra Costa County Fire Protection District, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District and the Rodeo-Hercules Fire Protection District have a long history of working together across our neighboring Districts. As your local first responders, our top priority is protecting lives and property by:
