After four years as chief of the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department, Chief Ruben Torres will be leaving his post and returning to the South Bay to lead the Santa Clara Fire Department.

The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department (LPFD) operates under a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) established in 1996 to serve both cities with fire protection and paramedic services. This partnership provides a more efficient administration and cost-effective delivery of services. This unique arrangement ensures effective deployment of emergency response within the communities of Pleasanton and Livermore through shared administration, fire protection resources and improved training and development of first responders. The LPFD is governed by a JPA board of directors which is a subcommittee of city councils where joint consensus and partnership are used to make decisions with equal influence. The two city managers of Livermore and Pleasanton function as the department’s joint executive directors.
