Tuolumne County Fire Authority

The Tuolumne County Fire Authority (TCFA or Fire Authority) is a joint powers authority formed pursuant to California Government Code §6500 et seq. including the following jurisdictions: City of Sonora Fire Department, Columbia Fire Protection District, County of Tuolumne Fire Department, Groveland Community Services District Fire Department, Jamestown Fire Protection District, and Tuolumne Fire District.  

The TCFA was formed in February 2021 for the purpose of joining multiple local fire departments together in a legal entity that can place a measure on the ballot for local voters to decide whether to approve a parcel tax intended to specifically fund fire and emergency services within the boundaries of all of the fire departments listed above.  More information on TCFA and the funding measure proposed for an all mail ballot June 8, 2021 will be available on this site as information becomes available. The Measure V FAQ document is provided for information only and updated as new questions are addressed.
