Protecting the Beautiful West Shore of Lake Tahoe


We Are Under Construction

Station 61, located at 8041 Hwy 89 in Meeks Bay, is currently under construction to enlarge the apparatus doors. During construction, the business office is temporarily located at North Tahoe Fire’s Station 51 in Tahoe City at 222 Fairway Drive. You can still contact us at 530-525-7548. Safety staff is still protecting our community from the Station 62 location at 7164 – 7th Street in Tahoma.

Chipping Program and Defensible Space Inspections

You can now sign up for chipping service and/or a defensible space inspection online. You can access the link here, or by selecting Defensible Space/Chipping, located under the Prevention tab. Unfortunately, we do not have grant funding to cover the cost of pine needle pick up this year.
