Website Rodeo-Hercules Fire Protection District
The Rodeo-Hercules Fire Protection District (RHFPD) is located on the shores of San Pablo Bay, 30 minutes north of San Francisco. The RHFPD provides fire protection, advanced life support emergency medical aid, rescue, hazardous material responses and other services to over 33,000 residents in the unincorporated area of Rodeo and the City of Hercules. The RHFPD is an independent autonomous Fire Agency that contains a major oil refinery (Conoco Phillips SFR), a large wildland urban interface, an industrial park with numerous underground fuel pipelines, two major rail lines, the Interstate 80 freeway, and State Route Four.
The new Fire Chief will experience a diverse range of operational dynamics that come with supporting an incorporated city (Hercules) and an unincorporated community (Rodeo) within Contra Costa County, in addition to supporting a major oil refinery. The Chief must also be a committed public servant, who believes in the duty of public safety and delivering lasting positive change for the department. This will require a collaborative and service oriented chief who closely works with various constituents and has the ability to relate to and engage the community, industry and government partners in providing proactive safety programs such as emergency preparedness, emergency medical and fire suppression support.
Candidates must possess eight years of full-time firefighting experience, including at least four years in a supervisory capacity at the rank of Captain or above. An AA degree in Fire Science is preferred. However, service time, experience and equivalent educational background may be considered in lieu of a degree. Possession of Chief Officer Certification from the California State Fire Marshal or NFPA Fire Officer level III or above, Hazardous Materials Technical or Specialist, and EMT I or higher, are also highly desirable.
