In 1996, the Livermore Fire Department and the Pleasanton Fire Department joined forces as a Joint Powers Authority to form The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department. The organization uses a joint powers authority (JPA) model with essential support services provided jointly by the cities of Livermore and Pleasanton. Since then, the department endeavors to serve the citizens of both cities with efficiency and compassion.
At the same time, both the Livermore Fire Department and the Pleasanton Fire Department have independent histories serving the area's citizens. Their heritage reaches far into the past and is reflected in our culture even today. We invite you to come along with us on this journey from far past to past to present. We are them and they are us. In these pages, we document our story.
