NOTICE: CREDIT/DEBIT CARD FEE
Starting July 1, customers who use a credit or debit card to make payments with the San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department will be subject to service fees.
Companies that process credit or debit card transactions typically charge about 2-3% of the billed amount. The fee is paid directly to the company processing the transaction and is not charged by the Fire Department. Customers can avoid these fees by paying with alternate methods such as cash, check, or e-check.
Customers will be notified of the card fees prior to payment on online portals, with signs at Fire Department facilities, and when making payments over the phone.
