In response to the County Board’s plan to reorganize fire protection services, the Fontana City Council initiated and subsequently filed with San Bernardino LAFCO an alternative proposal for the provision of fire protection. The City proposed the creation of a subsidiary district and appointment of the City Council as the governing body of the new district.


The service boundary includes Fontana’s corporate limits and the County areas within the City’s sphere of influence. It has been a goal of the City to obtain local control for fire protection and to comprehensively serve the citizens and residents both within the City limits and the City’s sphere of influence.

As of July 1, 2008, the Fontana Fire Protection District (FFPD) became a reality. The services that were once provided by the Central Valley Fire Protection District are now provided by the FFPD. Residents will continue to call 9-1-1 for fire and paramedic service. The primary difference residents will notice is the fire equipment will also display the fire district’s new logo.
