During 1996-1998, the 5 former Districts have been combined as follows:
- The Arroyo Seco and the Tujunga Districts have been combined to create the new Los Angeles River District (#1). Some boundary changes have been made also.
- The Mt. Baldy District name has been changed to San Gabriel River District (#2).
- The Saugus and Valyermo Districts have been combined to create the new Santa Clara and Mojave River District (#3).
These new names are not as colorful nor as clear as the old ones. In particular, considerable confusion may come about by the L.A. River name, since no part of the L.A. River proper is in the ANF, and many people consider the L.A. River to originate outside the ANF. The Mojave river originates in the San Bernadino mountains, not the San Gabriels.
Unit designations within a district begin with that district's number. For example, engine 56 (Big Tujunga Station) is now engine 13 (five was the number for the old Tujunga District.)
