NORTH TAHOE FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT
North Tahoe Fire Protection District was formed in 1993, following the consolidation of Tahoe City Fire Protection District (Tahoe City, CA) and North Tahoe Fire Protection District (Kings Beach, CA). The District’s mission is to provide the best quality fire protection, fire prevention, fire safety education, emergency medical service, and other emergency response services to the citizens and visitors of the District. Currently, the District’s 50 uniformed and support personnel protects an area of 32 square miles on the north and west shores of Lake Tahoe.
Recent rains and cooler temperatures across the region have lowered the threat of wildfires allowing CAL FIRE’s Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit to transition out of peak fire season effective Monday, November 14, 2016 at 8:00 A.M. in Nevada, Yuba, Placer and Sierra Counties.
