Board of Directors

Board Meetings

A publicly elected Board of Directors governs the Fire District. Regular board meetings occur each month on the second Thursday of the month beginning at 7:00 PM at the Administration Office at 6934 Soquel Drive in Aptos.

Meetings are open to the public and public attendance is strongly encouraged. If you wish to attend a meeting, call us at (831) 685-6690 during business hours to confirm that the meeting date has not changed (a rare occurrence).

Board Meeting Agendas

We will provide advance copies of board meeting agendas and all meeting support materials upon request. Per Brown Act compliance, Regular Board Meeting Agendas will be posted a minimum of 72 hours prior to the date/time of the meeting, at all 3 District Fire Stations and at the La Selva public library. Agendas for Special Meetings will be posted a minimum of 24 hours prior.  You can also sign up to receive email or text message notifications when new agendas are posted by signing up for our Notify Me mailing list here.

Board Roles & Responsibilities

The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the policies that are implemented by the staff, leading the District by expressing its vision and values, and by inspiring and empowering District employees to work together to create an effective and positive work environment that adheres to the highest standards of conduct. The Board faces many challenges each year, including setting the District budget, oversight of the Fire Chief and operations, and addressing fire hazard and life-safety issues.
