The department was established on Sept. 15, 1958, and has grown from a single station department to a fully-paid, 12-district organization that staffs five to six paid personnel per station, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

The stations are covered by firefighters who are all trained to provide medical care, 24/7, 365 days a year. The shifts consist of 48 hours on and 96 hours off.

There are a total of 254 sworn positions. The positions range from firefighter up to fire chief in rank. BCFD also has 9 civilian administrative positions.

In 2019 BCFD responded to 18,732 emergencies, of which, just under 80% were medical responses. There are three distinct coverage zones referred to as “regions” within the jurisdiction of BCFD.

The Fire Department is organized into three battalions covering the three regions of the county.

Each battalion consists of four fire stations located throughout the jurisdiction to provide emergency services.
