HOW DO I REQUEST FIRE RECORDS OR INCIDENT REPORT?
You must request by submitting either the Petaluma Fire Request for Public Records or the Petaluma Fire Application for Release of Incident Report form to the appropriate department listed in the form. If you are not sure which form to submit, you can begin the request process HERE.
City staff will pull matching files and may request clarifying information that could help identify the records sought. Within ten (10) days of receipt of a request, City staff will determine whether the request seeks non-exempt records or parts of records in the City’s possession and inform the requester. In some circumstances, the City may have up to an additional fourteen (14) days to make its determination upon proper notice to the requester. The City will inform requester of the time and date when non-exempt records or parts of records will be made available. (California Government Code sections 6253, 6253.1.)
