Chief’s Message

Welcome to CCFD’s website!  I am proud to serve as Fire Chief for the communities of Burlingame, Hillsborough, and Millbrae and lead the men and women of Central County Fire Department (CCFD).  We provide the highest quality of service to our communities.  Our personnel are among the most talented individuals in the fire service today and as our mission statement says, “we dedicate ourselves to enriching the quality of life of the citizens and visitors in our communities by protecting their lives, property, and the environment.” 

We are committed to safe communities through education, prevention, and emergency response.  Our Fire Board has provided the support and direction needed to ensure we are well equipped and highly trained professionals.  We honor the traditions of the fire service and embrace the changes required to be leaders in the fire service. 

It is my job to ensure that the values of service, integrity, and compassion are understood and followed by every member of our organization.  It is without hesitation that I can confidently say we do that every day.  Whether you live in or visit our communities, you can rest assured that CCFD will be there for you in routine and emergency circumstances. 

I hope you find the information on our website useful.  Should you have any input, suggestions, or have a question, please call us directly 650-558-7600.
