The Moraga-Orinda Fire Protection District (MOFD) provides fire protection, rescue, and emergency medical services in the City of Orinda, the Town of Moraga, some unincorporated county areas adjacent to the municipalities, and the community of Canyon.
The District’s primary accomplishments in recent years have been the result of focused efforts to improve prevention efforts, building financial reserves, and creating trusts to off-set current and future fiscal liabilities. All properties within the municipal boundaries or the City of Orinda and the Town of Moraga have a rating of "2." A rating of “9” is given for the rural areas of Bollinger Canyon and the community of Canyon.
The District proudly provides an “all-risk” delivery system and will respond and mitigate any incident that has harmful physical effects to persons or property. Within the District, there are five strategically located fire stations which deploy a wide variety of apparatus for specific emergencies. Each fire engine, fire truck and cross-staffed ambulance is staffed with at least one firefighter/paramedic. The full-time ambulance, located at Station 41 is staffed with two firefighter/paramedics.
