Find The Jurisdiction

JURISDICTION DETERMINES WHICH AGENCY HAS THE AUTHORITY FOR CODE ENFORCEMENT AND WHICH LOCAL CODES THEY ENFORCE

It is essential to know the correct municipal jurisdiction for your parcel in order to determine fire prevention jurisdiction. Since your mailing address (assigned by the Post Office) may not be the same as your correct municipal jurisdiction, we have provided a method for you to determine which fire agency to contact.

Search using the appropriate property information to The Santa Clara County Assessor's Office to display the Assessment Roll Information for the parcel in question. The information on the Tax Rate Area (TRA) tab can be used to determine which Jurisdiction the property falls in to (TRA format: 017-222). Compare the first three digits of the TRA with the table below for the Jurisdiction, and contact information for each jurisdiction can be found below the table.
