Strategic Plan Events



The strategic plan serves as a roadmap for delivering emergency services over the next five years to the town of Rodeo and the city of Hercules. The plan is a key driver of the District’s future, identifying where we focus to improve service and meet stakeholder expectations. Your input will help us to better serve our community.
