North Tahoe Firefighters Association
The primary mission of the North Tahoe Fire Protection District is to provide the highest possible level of fire, rescue and pre-hospital emergency medical services to the customers of the communities we serve within the financial constraints of available funding. The NTFPD protects an area of 31 square miles on the north and west shores of Lake Tahoe. There are six fire stations within the District which are located in Alpine Meadows, Tahoe City, Homewood, Dollar Hill, Carnelian Bay and Kings Beach, that are staffed by 50 uniformed and support personnel to nearly 20,000 people within the area we serve.
The varied demographics of the District provide opportunity for its personnel to respond to emergencies in rural, suburban and urban settings. The wide diversity of emergency incidents require firefighters to be proficient in wildland fire fighting, structural fire fighting, back country/technical rescue, swift water rescue, hazardous materials mitigation, and emergency medical services.
The North Tahoe Fire Protection District continues to provide all risk emergency response to the citizens of our district. This includes the best quality fire protection, fire prevention, fire safety education, emergency medical service, and other emergency response services.
