It’s Fire Season in East Contra Costa!

In fire emergencies, every second counts. When a fire strikes, delayed response times can allow a fire to double in size every 30 seconds. Response times MATTER. However, due to historic under-funding of our local fire service - East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) - the level of fire risk for East County residents, businesses, firefighters, and communities of Brentwood, Oakley, Discovery Bay, Bethel Island, Byron, Knigthtsen, Marsh Creek, Morgan Territory, and surrounding rural communities, has risen to a severe level.

ECCFPD has only 3 fire stations open and 9 firefighters on duty at any given time to cover 250 square miles and 128,000 residents. It’s not enough to keep our community safe.
