San Bernardino County Fire Limits Public Contact & Closes Facilities to the Public
As of Monday, March 16, most San Bernardino County Fire facilities will be closed to the public until further notice. The closure is out of an abundance of caution to keep our community and employees healthy. All fire stations, administrative offices, and County Fire Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facilities are closed to the public. Our fire stations are all fully staffed and will remain operational. HHW will continue to pick-up bulk hazardous waste from its remote facilities.
Customer service remains a priority. As such, services at the Office of the Fire Marshal will continue with minimal person to person contact. We encourage you to utilize our online services. Plan reviews can be submitted electronically with the EZ online permit process at http://wp.sbcounty.gov/ezop/ or by mail. Site inspections will continue except for medical facilities, residential care facilities and schools. Normal inspections will resume once the County Health Officer lifts the emergency proclamation. The Office of the Fire Marshal may be reached at 909-386-8400.
Most services and questions can be accessed through our website at www.sbcfire.org. We encourage you to utilize our online services whenever possible. For additional assistance, please contact our Headquarters at 909-387-5974 or email email@example.com. For a list of phone numbers to reach our fire stations and other facilities, please see https://sbcfire.org/about/Contact.aspx. For Household Hazardous Waste facilities, visit https://sbcfire.org/ofm/hhw/CollectionFacilities.aspx or call 909-382-5401.
