Arcata Fire District is governed by an elected 5-member Board of Directors, each serving a 4-year term. Anyone residing within the fire district boundaries, and who meets other legal requirements to hold public office, can run for a position on the Board. Elections are conducted every two years; each director serves a four-year term. The Board of Directors conducts regular public meetings, in compliance with the Brown Act. The meetings are currently held via zoom due to the pandemic starting at 5:30 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of each month unless otherwise noted.
In order to meet the State required Shelter in Place mandate, Board Meetings for the Arcata Fire Protection District will be held via remote access using Zoom.
