Truckee Fire Protection District is officially responsible for 125 square miles and is one of the oldest fire districts in the Truckee Tahoe area of Northern California. A public agency, supported by public funds, the district operates under Fire District Law established in 1987 and is a independent Special District.
Our business is the protection of life and property through the provision of fire rescue and emergency medical services. This district offers a high level of service to our mountain community and outlying areas and is made up of 49 full time and 9 part time and/or volunteer members.
The District is governed locally by a five member Board of Directors, elected during the general elections held in November. The Board of Directors is responsible for setting policy and general administrative procedures for the District. The policies and procedures set by the board are then administered by the Fire Chief of the District.
