This page is your one stop source of information on LAFCO’s Countywide Fire Service Review. If you have additional questions please contact LAFCO staff at LAFCO@ceo.sccgov.org
In August 2021, an online community survey on fire service was released on the LAFCO website. The purpose of the survey was to evaluate fire services and determine the community’s level of wildfire preparedness. The survey, which is now closed, was provided in both English and Spanish to engage a broad section of the community.
Also, in August 2021, three virtual Community Meetings were held by LAFCO in partnership with other local fire service providers. Each meeting included similar content but was targeted to communities in a different part of the county (i.e. communities in south Santa Clara County, central and east Santa Clara County, and north and west Santa Clara County). The meetings were an opportunity for the public and local agencies to learn more about the Countywide Fire Service Review, provide input on fire service and emergency medical service in their community, and hear from local fire service providers about fire safety and wildfire preparedness.
A summary of the survey results and the input received at the three community meetings will be included in the service review report. LAFCO’s new consultant will take this information into consideration as they prepare the service review.
Throughout this Service Review process there will be many other opportunities (community meetings, TAC meetings and LAFCO public hearings) for the public to engage and provide input on the study. Stay tuned for meeting information!
