The primary mission of the Brea Fire Services Department is the delivery of life safety services. The department provides 24-hour emergency response to a wide variety of critical situations, including fires, explosions, hazardous materials incidents, medical emergencies, accidents, and miscellaneous public assistance requests. In addition, the department operates a very active Fire Prevention and Emergency Preparedness Program, which provides for fire inspections, hazardous process permitting, fire code enforcement, public education, and business emergency planning in accordance with California Code of Regulations.

Emergency Preparedness

Every person has a level of responsibility for their own safety. The more one prepares, the more effective they may be should the unexpected occur. Private citizens and businesses have way to learn and become involved. The City of Brea invites all to commit to emergency preparedness.


Brea has trained hundreds of residents to be better prepared through the national program, Community Emergency Response Team. This dedicated group of volunteers is more commonly known as CERT and they can be seen at many local events ready to answer questions and invite others to attend a training series.

Free Pulse Point App

Pulse Point is a pilot program in partnership with Metro Net Fire Authority seven other Orange County agencies. Pulse Point alerts nearby citizens when there is a need for critical lifesaving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the location of nearby public access automated external defibrillators (AED). The free app is intended to improve community response to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Metro Cities Fire Authority, in cooperation with the Metro Cities’ dispatch center (Metro Net), is the first agency in Orange County to implement this application.
