The French Camp McKinley Fire District is governed by a five-member Fire Board. The terms are four years with staggered terms. The Fire Board consists of five locally elected officials; any resident of the French Camp McKinley Fire District can run for a Board of Director seat. Elections are held every two years on the even years; one election is for two seats, and the next election is for three seats. The Board of Directors is the elected policy-making body for the French Camp McKinley Rural Fire Protection District. The Board of Directors provide financial oversight and strategic policy direction to maximize the public value of the French Camp McKinley Rural Fire Protection District's services, they oversee the Fire District as a collective group.
