COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT

The County Fire Department is responsible for structural fire protection, first responder emergency medical services, technical rescue, public fire safety education, and fire marshal services including inspection services for unincorporated areas of the County that are not included in an autonomous fire district. Volunteer firefighters make up the bulk of County Fire Department staffing, with supplemental staffing from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE).

CSA 4 PAJARO DUNES

The County provides fire protection for Pajaro Dunes as a discretionary function through a contract with CAL FIRE. The fire station at Pajaro Dunes is financed by CSA 4 assessments. Though CSA 4 does not directly employ firefighters, workers compensation and firefighter intern stipends for training and shift assignments are funded through the budget.
