A MESSAGE FROM THE FIRE CHIEF MICHAEL SCHWARTZ
Updated August 6, 2019
Fire season is in full swing. Personnel from North Tahoe Fire and Meeks Bay Fire, along with our fire agency cooperators, have responded frequently to vegetation, debris, or other fires. Because of the quick multi-jurisdictional responses, coupled with the increased staffing and available resources, the fires have been kept relatively small; abandoned campfires and dooryard burning are among the most frequent requests.
All members of the North Tahoe Fire Protection District are here to serve you every hour of every day. If you have any questions regarding the District or the services we provide, please do not hesitate to call me at (530) 584-2318 or email me.
The North Tahoe Fire Protection District would like to thank you for visiting our website. I also suggest you follow us on Facebook or Twitter and, during times of critical incidents within the District, tune into our very own local broadcast radio network Channel 1630 on your AM dial! You can also listen to our live radio traffic at www.broadcastify.com.
Michael Schwartz joined the North Tahoe Fire Protection District as its Fire Chief in 2012, after serving 29 years with a neighboring fire agency. Along with his wife, Jean, they have been a part of the Lake Tahoe community since 1978, raising four children and participating in many local community organizations.
