Fire department sharing expanding to three cities
March 17, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

San Mateo and Foster City are ready to expand their shared fired administration by including the Belmont Fire Protection District in the contract being discussed by their city councils Monday night.

If the year-long agreement is approved by both the San Mateo and Foster City councils at their respective Monday night meetings, the Belmont Fire Protection District will be responsible for 20 percent each of the fire chief, battalion chief and operational battalion chief. The district will also provide at their cost a deputy fire chief position. The operational battalion chief coverage will be out of Station 23.

San Mateo and Foster City have shared fire services since 2010 and Belmont is a “natural partner” because of the geographic proximity and long working relationship, Interim City Manager Larry Patterson wrote in a staff report to the council

The Belmont City Council already approved the contract at its March 11 meeting.

The initial contract runs from July 1, 2014 to July 1, 2015 with automatic renewals unless either party terminates it sooner. The price tag is $282,279 based on a formula for two extra engine companies and 20 percent of the provided administrative services. Future contracts could price higher if position costs increase.

The San Mateo City Council meets Monday, March 17 at City Hall, 330 W. 20th Ave. San Mateo.
