The primary mission of the Brea Fire Services Department is the delivery of life safety services. The department provides 24-hour emergency response to a wide variety of critical situations, including fires, explosions, hazardous materials incidents, medical emergencies, accidents, and miscellaneous public assistance requests. In addition, the department operates a very active Fire Prevention Program and Emergency Preparedness Program, which provides for fire inspections, hazardous process permitting, fire code enforcement, public education, and business emergency planning in accordance with California Code of Regulations.
Every person has a level of responsibility for their own safety. The more one prepares, the more effective they may be should the unexpected occur. Private citizens and businesses have way to learn and become involved. The City of Brea invites all to commit to emergency preparedness.
Brea has trained hundreds of residents to be better prepared through the national program, Community Emergency Response Team. This dedicated group of volunteers is more commonly known as CERT and they can be seen at many local events ready to answer questions and invite others to attend a training series.
Brea-Fullerton Joint Powers Authority Study
The Fire Feasibility study was commissioned to examine opportunities and challenges that might result from merging fire departments under a potential Joint Powers Authority (JPA) jurisdiction between the Cities of Brea and Fullerton. This follows years of successfully integrating the command structure, which has resulted in substantial savings for both cities.
Information was provided to the Council from several documents. Citygate prepared the Brea-Fullerton JPA Feasibility Study. In addition, a second document is the Brea-Fullerton EMS Feasibility Study. For purposes of a special meeting held in January 2017, a summary of reports presentation was compiled. No action was taken by the Council.

Free Pulse Point App
Pulse Point is a pilot program in partnership with Metro Net Fire Authority seven other Orange County agencies. Pulse Point alerts nearby citizens when there is a need for critical lifesaving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the location of nearby public access automated external defibrillators (AED). The free app is intended to improve community response to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Metro Cities Fire Authority, in cooperation with the Metro Cities’ dispatch center (Metro Net), is the first agency in Orange County to implement this application.
