Personnel are the Fire District’s most valuable resource. The contribution of each and every employee is critical to the success of the District. The Human Resources Department administers the following programs under the direction of the Human Resources Director:
RECRUITMENT & HIRING
Administration of the recruitment and hiring process for all Fire District staff positions is conducted with a focus on attracting and appointing the most highly qualified candidates possible. This holds true for promotional examination processes, as well as open recruitment efforts, all of which are conducted in accordance with Fire District Personnel Rules and Regulations and legal requirements. In 2007, the district adopted a Standards of Cover Plan. This plan serves as a guide to address staffing and emergency response needs in the areas of fire suppression and emergency medical service as the District continues to grow. Additionally, a Long Range Personnel Plan focusing on the staffing needs of administrative and support positions was approved in 2003, and continues to be a reference point for changes in this area of staffing.
The Fire District’s employee relations activities are focused on ensuring that employment practices are handled in a consistent and fair manner, and in keeping with all legal requirements. This includes activities such as classification and compensation studies, labor contracts negotiation and administration for represented and unrepresented employee groups, and oversight of disciplinary matters. Development and administration of personnel related rules, regulations, and procedures is a major area of emphasis.
SALARY & BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION
Benefit packages are coordinated with employees and the Fire District’s benefit programs including vacation and sick leave, comprehensive medical, dental, vision, life and disability insurance, and PERS retirement are administered.
The protection of all Fire District resources is a priority. These resources include our personnel, property, equipment, and capital. Toward that end, the Fire District focuses on identifying and analyzing areas of exposure to potential loss, examining alternative risk management techniques, and implementing and monitoring the most effective risk management solutions.
The District is a member of a Risk Management Joint Powers Authority consisting of many public agencies throughout California. This JPA provides a pooled insurance program through which the District obtains liability and property insurance, and excess insurance coverage for its self-insured Workers’ Compensation program. Additionally, this pooled program provides supplemental risk management services such as third-party administrative services, and training programs.
