Fire Services

Alameda County Fire Department

Effective July 2012, the City of Emeryville has contracted with the Alameda County Fire Department (ACFD) to provide comprehensive fire services to protect and safeguard life, environment, and property, including “all-risk” services that mitigate the effects of fire, injury, illness, entrapment, hazardous materials, storm, human-caused calamity, and natural disaster.

The ACFD was formed in 1993 as a special district governed by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. In addition to Emeryville, the ACFD provides fire services to unincorporated areas of the county as well as the cities of Dublin, Newark, San Leandro, Union City; and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.


The Alameda County Fire Department is providing a full range of services to the Emeryville community, including:
  • Fire Prevention
  • Operations (fire suppression, emergency medical services, and firefighter training)
  • Special Operations (includes dispatch along with emergency management / community preparedness programs)
  • Support Services
In addition, through the ACFD, the City will have increased emergency response through partnerships and contracts with neighboring jurisdictions, the Alameda County mutual aid system, and the California Fire and Rescue Mutual Aid System.

Fire inspection services will continue to be accessible through the City’s Planning / Building counter at Emeryville Civic Center, 1333 Park Avenue.


Under the contract, Fire Station 1 (2333 Powell Street) and Fire Station 2 (6303 Hollis) will remain open but will be renamed Alameda County Fire Station 34 and Alameda County Fire Station 35.
