Foster City Fire is a relatively "young" department, having been formed in 1965 before Foster City itself was officially incorporated in 1971.
The Department originally operated as a Public Safety Department with all personnel performing both Police and Fire functions. In 1976, the Police and Fire Divisions separated and personnel became dedicated to a single function, police or fire, though both Divisions continued to be administered by a single Public Safety Chief.It was not until 1981 that Police and Fire became separate and distinct Departments under separate executive management.
