The Fairview Fire Protection District contracts with the City of Hayward to provide "fire protection and emergency…More medical services within the boundaries of the district." This department location overlooks Castro Valley from a hillside and is neighbored by animal farms and residential homes. There are always three firefighters at the station around the clock, at least one of whom is also a trained paramedic. Services include fire-safety inspections, the elementary-school fire-safety program, fire-station tours and safety information for daycare centers, events and info on proper disposal of hazardous wastes. This station is also a Safe Surrender site, where a parent or guardian can surrender a baby confidentially without fear of prosecution.
