Fire chiefs to present findings on feasibility of combining 2 Contra Costa fire districts

CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA — We have come to the end of the phase 2 Feasibility Study that was evaluating the East Contra Costa Fire Protection’s District jurisdiction into the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.

At our July 14, 2021 regular Board of Director’s meeting, AP Triton with Chiefs Helmick and Brouschard will be presenting the final findings of the study.

Please join us that evening to have the most up to date information on this potential annexation between our two agencies and correcting this decades old challenge of our service level deficits that our communities face.  I continue to explore all means on correcting this challenge and invite you all to participate on this momentous occasion.  The link to the on-line meeting is and I hope to see you all there.

Brian Helmick is the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Chief. For more information, please visit
