Alameda County Fire Department

Welcome to the Alameda County Fire Department. The Alameda County Fire Department (ACFD) was formed on July 1, 1993 as a dependent special district with the Alameda County Board of Supervisors as its governing body. This consolidation brought together into a single jurisdiction the Castro Valley Fire Department, Eden Fire Department and County Fire Patrol (each a dependent special district under the Board of Supervisors).

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will be conducting an annual prescribed burn at its Site 300 experimental test site south of Tracy beginning the week of May 16.
The purpose of the prescribed burn is to help prevent seasonal wildfires from spreading to or from Site 300. This process involves careful burning along the site fence line and in portions of the site interior under controlled conditions. The burn schedule is heavily dependent on appropriate weather conditions, which are confirmed by air district meteorologists on the day of a planned burn.
This year’s prescribed burn plans, prepared for the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, are available for viewing in the Tracy Public Library and on the LLNL Environment, Safety & Health website under Prescribed Burns.

Chipper Program

The Free community chipping program runs Saturdays, April 23 - June 4, 2022. This service is for residents in high fire areas aimed to reduce potential fire hazards by assisting with the *chipping of vegetation that exceeds green bin space but too small for commercial chipping providers. It is being offered in collaboration with CAL FIRE and their Fuel Management Teams and ACFD's Reserve Firefighter Training and Education Program.

ACFD response areas and CAL FIRE state response areas are the program priorities, most of which are located in Alameda County unincorporated areas (excluding Fairview), and San Leandro. The purpose is to create defensible space around the home and access routes for first responders.

We will not enter private property; this is a curb side service. No work will be done during Red Flag days. *Chipped materials will not be hauled away.
