Fire Commissioners

 The Linda Fire Protection District has an elected Board of three Fire Commissioners. As elected officials, the Commissioners serve as the representatives of the citizens who live in the District. The Commissioners serve four year terms and are responsible for making certain the fire District is meeting the needs of those we serve. The Fire Chief is the Chief Administrative Officer of the District and makes the day-to-day operational decisions, but it is the Board’s responsibility to oversee the larger district considerations. These include:
