Welcome to the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District (NLTFPD). As Fire Chief, I am proudly tasked with overseeing this fire department. The NLTFPD has been providing all risk services to the communities of Incline Village and Crystal Bay for fifty years. We have felt the growing pains for service delivery throughout the years but have adapted where needed and will continue to progress and promote change when required. Our community support allows us to provide the services that we do. Our most valuable asset for making sure this is done in a manner that elicits professionalism, knowledge, skills and abilities is our personnel. The NLTPFD employees are informed, proficient, compassionate, and true care givers of the community. As a team, we will continue to research and evolve with the community we serve, applying the most current technology in the industry while acquiring the latest in equipment to support our community and those in the surrounding area. Please explore our website and provide feedback that you feel will be valuable to improving our service delivery. If you are in the area, please stop by any of our stations and visit our department. Thank you and be safe, Michael Brown
FEBRUARY 26, 2015: HOARDING & FIRE SAFETY
Many fire departments are experiencing serious fires, injuries, and deaths as the result of compulsive hoarding behavior. The excessive accumulation of materials in homes poses a significant threat to firefighters fighting fires and responding to other emergencies in these homes and to residents and neighbors. Often, the local fire department will be contacted to help deal with this serious issue.
