Welcome to the
South Bay Fire Department!

Burning will not be permitted from July 15th through October 15th or during a burn curtailment.

The restrictions on outdoor burning during the summer and early autumn has resulted in a significant drop in brush fires and property damage each of the past couple years, according to fire officials.

Residents who have yard waste to dispose of should look into clean alternatives to burning. Alternatives such as chipping and composting help keep our air clean and healthful. Those alternatives can also be used all summer, unlike burning. Read here for more information on burning.

The South Bay Fire Fighters’ Association 16th Annual Holiday Bazaar is coming up. It will take place November 1st, 2014. Read here for more information.
