Orinda Measure R
To help maintain and enhance essential City services, including wildfire risk reduction throughout Orinda, preparation for emergencies and disasters, repair of public storm drains, continued public street maintenance, and other city services. The voters of Orinda increased its existing one-half cent sales tax to one cent, which could generate approximately $2.4 million annually for a period of twenty years, with financial audits, public review of all expenditures, and a citizens’ oversight commission (SSTOC).
The Moraga-Orinda Fire Protection District (MOFD) was formed in 1997 as an integrated independent special district. MOFD was formed through the consolidation of the Moraga Fire Protection District and the Orinda Fire Protection District to provide more efficient fire protection and emergency medical services to the communities of Moraga and Orinda and the surrounding unincorporated areas, including the communities of Canyon and Bollinger Canyon.

Wildfire Action Plan (CWPP)
OFC was founded in February 2020 in response to the “new normal” of a year-round wildfire season resulting from climate change and decades of un-mitigated fuel buildup. Driven by the enthusiastic support of neighbors, elected leaders, and our visionary Fire Chief, we have quickly grown in size and influence.
