Fire
It is the mission of the Butte County Cooperative Fire Agencies to provide professional services to protect lives, property, and environment to those residing, working or traveling within the unincorporated areas of Butte County, the Cities of Biggs and Gridley and the Town of Paradise.

Our Headquarters office located in Oroville, is the hub of our operations. It is where all of the "behind the scenes" work takes place to support our Fire staff on a daily basis. Division Chief Darren Read oversees all of the Administrative side of business. Everything from hiring for a busy fire season, ensuring our fleet of engines and vehicles are in top running condition, and overseeing the distribution of the day to day tools to ensure that our fire fighters can protect and serve our communities.
