Find Your Jurisdiction

JURISDICTION DETERMINES WHICH AGENCY HAS THE AUTHORITY
FOR FIRE CODE ENFORCEMENT

AND WHICH LOCAL CODES THEY ENFORCE

It is essential to know the correct municipal jurisdiction for your parcel in order to determine fire prevention jurisdiction.  Since your mailing address (assigned by the Post Office) may not be the same as your correct municipal jurisdiction, we have provided a method for you to determine which fire agency to contact.
 
CLICK THE ASSESSOR'S OFFICE LINK BELOW
TO DETERMINE THE CORRECT JURISDICTION FOR YOUR PROJECT

Click on this link to the County Assessor's Office and enter the address or the Assessor's Parcel Number (APN), from your property tax bill in the designated fields. Click the "Search" button to display the Assessment Roll Information for your parcel. On that site click the Tax Rate Area tab and note the TRA (TRA format: 017-222).
 
Return to this window and find the first three digits of your TRA in the chart below for the contact information for that jurisdiction. (Bookmark drop downs are out of order, so please scroll down to the correct number for the city on the list just below. Sorry for the inconvenience.)
