A Deputy Fire Chief leads the Administration & Support Services Branch. The Branch is responsible for the Fire Prevention Division, Training and Special Operations Division, Fleet Maintenance, Logistics, Staffing, Emergency Management, and Disaster Preparedness. The divisions are led by Assistant Fire Chiefs, Fleet Maintenance is led by a Fleet Manager, and the support services areas are led by an Administrative Battalion Chief.
Support Services is responsible for logistical support, staffing, recruitment and hiring, media relations, and disaster preparedness. Logistics personnel are responsible for ordering and maintaining required equipment and supplies for Department members to carry out the mission and serve the community. Staffing ensures all 9-1-1 resources are staffed 24 hours every day of the year.
Disaster Preparedness is coordinated by the Administrative Battalion Chief across the Fire Department and the District and collaboratively with the City of Elk Grove, City of Galt, and Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services. This includes the management of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), a community-based program devoted to providing disaster-trained volunteers to supplement fire service and law enforcement personnel in a significant emergency or disaster.
