Join NFPD Fuels Management Team!

An urgent and important message from the County of Lake.


Northshore Fire Protection District’s Fuels Management Team is

Making Lake County Communities Safer

Applications are Being Accepted on an Ongoing Basis,


Lake County, CA (July 29, 2022) – Since 2015, nearly two-thirds of Lake County’s landmass has been consumed by wildfire.  Groups throughout the County are taking urgent action to make our communities safer.  Collaboration and partnership among firefighters and other fire protection professionals, Tribal, County and City governments, community-based organizations and agencies and others has prepared us to make meaningful progress.


One recent success story is Northshore Fire Protection District’s Fuels Management Crew.  Under the leadership of Chief Mike Ciancio, this group is already out conducting fire suppression and fire prevention activities in areas of high priority throughout Lake County!  This work is possible, in part, thanks to a $662,000 donation from the Habematolel Tribe of Upper Lake.  The Lake County Board of Supervisors has committed to support remaining anticipated first-year costs, up to $538,000 (of a total of $1.2M).


Are you interested in joining this important team, and helping to reduce Lake County’s wildfire risk?


Applications are available at, and being accepted on an ongoing basis.
