The District’s Dispatch center is a critical component of emergency coordination and response. The fire dispatcher sends the appropriate number and type of units to the incident scene, relaying all of the significant information received from the caller to the responding fire units. Our dispatch team is comprised of four dispatch supervisors and nine dispatchers that provide dispatch services 24 hours per day, every day of the year.


In-House Fire Training

The East Bay Regional Park District Fire Department offers in-house training for employees looking to become firefighters. The training includes extinguishing wildland fires, structure fires, and vehicle fires. Attendees learn hazardous material (hazmat) response and how to work in confined spaces like sewers and caves for rescues.  This program was developed in an effort to standardize training for all fire personnel.
