Fire Protection Districts

((Section 13800 et seq. State Health and Safety Cod)

A fire protection district may provide fire protection services including ambulance services, rescue and first aid services, clearing of land, adoption of fire prevention ordinances, issuance of burning permits and dissemination of fire prevention information. A district may establish special fire protection zones when improvements are made which benefit only a portion of the district or for similar purposes. A district may consist of any incorporated and unincorporated territories which have not been declared the responsibility of the state for fire protection. The board of directors may be composed of one of the following alternatives: * The supervising authority (If the district includes only incorporated territory, this would be the city council; if more than one city is included, it would be the city council of the city with the largest population; if any unincorporated territory is included, the supervising authority is the board of supervisors.) * Five members appointed by the supervising authority * Five or eleven members appointed by and from the board of supervisors and by and from the city councils of the cities included within the district * Three or five members to be elected, generally, under the provisions of the Uniform District Election Law
