Fire & Emergency Services Options for San Carlos - 2010
In 2009, the San Carlos City Council asked the City Staff to begin a review of the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department Joint Powers Agreement (JPA). The JPA includes a provision for a review of the agreement terms every 4 years. The Council Members noted that 4 years have passed since the Fire JPA document was revised and a review is now appropriate.
Since that time, the Council has asked the City Staff for a number of reports on various aspects of the provision of Fire and Emergency Services in San Carlos. This includes a discussion of the history of the Fire JPA, the services provided, options for a more regional approach to these services, opportunities to reduce Fire and Emergency Service costs and the potential to reduce these costs through obtaining these services with a neighboring fire agency such as the City of San Mateo Fire Department, Cal Fire, the Redwood City Fire Department and the Menlo Park Fire Protection District.
