Fire & Emergency



The OCSD provides fire and emergency services through the Five Cities Fire Authority (FCFA). The FCFA was created as a “joint exercise of powers authority” through an agreement approved in 2010 between the cities of Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach and the OCSD.  The OCSD pays a portion of the annual costs of FCFA services based on a funding formula established in the FCFA agreement. One member of the OCSD Board of Directors is appointed to represent the OCSD on the FCFA Board of Directors and a second member of the OCSD Board is an alternate member on the FCFA Board. Since the OCSD does not control the operations of FCFA, the financial statements and audit of the FCFA are separate from the OCSD.
