From the Chief
Welcome to the Aptos/La Selva Fire Protection District website! The goal for our website is to provide important safety information to our local communities and to inform you of who we are and the many things we do on a daily basis.
As you can see from our banner, we respond to a broad range of emergency incidents within our 17 square mile service area. By navigating through the various tabs in the site, you will get a good overview of the many different services our 38 employees provide to the thousands of visitors and 22,000 residents in the Aptos area.
We encourage you to explore our “Safety Preparedness” section where we post information on protecting your family, home, and business from fires, floods, storm damage, earthquakes, and other hazards. You can also learn about the work your firefighters do and important events in the District by clicking on the “Aptos-La Selva in Action” and the “Newsroom” tabs.
If you’re interested in the management, budgets, and governance of the District, please explore the tab entitled “Behind the Scenes.” Here you’ll learn about your publicly elected fire board members and have access to download monthly board meeting agendas, board meeting minutes, and district financial information. The “About the District” and “History” tabs provide further information on our protection area and how we grew to be the organization we are today.
If you are working on a building construction project in our jurisdiction, you can learn about fire codes and ordinances under the “Building/Construction Info” tab and also access forms and permit applications.
Finally, if you want to get in touch with us, you’ll find our phone numbers and email addresses under the “Contact Us” tab, or you can reach me directly at 831-685-6690, ext. 113, or email email@example.com. We hope you find our web site enjoyable and informative and would appreciate any feedback on our format, things you’d like to see, or anything else you’d like to tell us or ask us about your fire district.
