The flaring has currently stopped at Chevron in Richmond but there may be intermittent flaring this evening. Flaring is a controlled burn off of gas. Our Hazardous Materials staff assessed the situation and determined a shelter-in-place was not needed.

Emergency Filing


In order to meet the needs of our community, Contra Costa Vital Registration has implemented a procedure for emergency filing.

On weekends and holidays emergency filings may be obtained from 9:00 a.m.–10:00 a.m. This is ONLY for emergency religious burials. Permits will only be issued during those hours. Please create the record in EDRS and then call 925-890-8779 for further instruction to register the death.
