Exploring Consolidation

Forestville Fire Protection District Board of Directors will be holding a special board meeting on November 26, 2019 at 6 p.m. at the Forestville Fire Station. The Board will be considering consolidation with the Sonoma County Fire District. Forestville Firefighters are in support of this consolidation. A couple benefits that Forestville will receive are:

  • add firefighter/paramedic staffing in the Forestville station
  • provide Chief, Executive, and Administrative leadership that would not otherwise be affordable
  • provide a dedicated Fire Prevention Bureau to conduct business inspections, property inspections and community disaster preparedness
  • provide Battalion Chief coverage to provide command and control of major emergencies
  • improve purchasing power and reduce overhead costs
  • bring relatively little or no tax increase for nearly half of Forestville residential property owners
  • avoid the need of significant parcel tax increases that budget shortfalls will dictate in 2–3 years
