FIRE DISTRICT BY-DIVISION ELECTORAL PROJECT

The Fire District Board of Directors declared its intention to transition from an at-large to a by-division electoral system to comply with the California Rights Act (CVRA). The Fire District currently has an “at-large” electoral system where voters from the entire Fire District vote for all members of the Board of Directors. This is in contrast to a “by-division” electoral system where the jurisdiction is divided into smaller divisions and a candidate must reside within that division in order to be elected by voters residing within that division.

DISTRICT OF DISTINCTION ACCREDITATION

The Chino Valley Fire District was accredited as a District of Distinction for a fifth time in June 2017. The Fire District was the first ever fire district in California to receive that accreditation in 2008.  The Fire District was the first ever fire district in California to receive the District of Distinction Platinum Level in 2017.
