About the Santa Clara County Fire Department
The Santa Clara County Fire Department is a full service fire department which has evolved through fire consolidations and contracts. In 1947, two agencies - the Cottage Grove Fire District and the Oakmead Farms Fire District - were consolidated to form the Santa Clara County Central Fire Protection District (now known as Santa Clara County Fire Department). This consolidation was the result of the California Division of Forestry withdrawing from the valley floor when its contract with Santa Clara County was terminated in 1947.


In that same year an election was held which authorized the Department to provide fire suppression services to the unincorporated area stretching from Highway 9 east across the valley to Mount Hamilton and south to the Almaden area.  In 1970, the Department consolidated with the Burbank Fire District and the Alma Fire District, and contracted with the Town of Los Gatos for fire protection services.


Today, the Santa Clara Fire Department serves Santa Clara County and the communities of Campbell, Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Morgan Hill and Saratoga.  In 2006, the Santa Clara Fire Department handled 13, 449 incidents.
