Our current membership consists of cities and towns, four fire districts, and one dispatch JPA, all located throughout California, including small and large, rural and urban, contract and full-service communities. All members participate in proactive safety and loss control programs with the common goals of reducing risk, minimizing losses, and controlling costs.

Member Representatives

Each CIRA member appoints a representative to the Board of Directors. This allows each member input to direct and control the organization. Members work toward common goals and objectives to minimize loss exposures, expand coverage, and, ultimately, reduce costs. Regardless of size, each member is afforded one vote.

Executive Committee

CIRA has a thirteen-member Executive Committee consisting of four officers and nine members-at-large represented by region and size. The Executive Committee members are elected from the Board of Directors and serve staggered two-year terms. The Board of Directors and Executive Committee may appoint subcommittees as needed.
