Contra Costa County and East Contra Costa Fire Boards’ approvals give greenlight to Fire District annexation plans


Contra Costa County Fire Protection District (Con Fire) and East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) today announced their boards of directors have each approved resolutions for the annexation of ECCFPD into the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District. The agencies are now expected to make applications to the Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) for formal
approval of the annexation.

When approved, Con Fire will absorb the firefighting staff, support staff, facilities and
equipment of today’s ECCFPD, (Oakley, Brentwood, Byron, Discovery Bay, Bethel Island and Knightsen) and the newly merged organization will provide improved fire
and emergency services to the more than 128,000 residents of eastern Contra Costa County.
The annexation approval process is expected to take four-to-six months followed by
operational and administrative consolidation of the two entities.
