Brentwood is a city located in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area with a population of 51,481 as of 2010.
Incorporated in 1948, the City of Brentwood is a charming and desirable community for residents and businesses alike. It began as a community in the late 19th century. The community is still known throughout the Bay Area for its agricultural products – primarily its cherries, corn and peaches. Due to urban sprawl many of the old farms and orchards have been replaced by suburban developments since 1990.

Fire protection services are provided by the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District to the City of Brentwood.
