Conquer Familiar Terrain with North Tahoe Fire Protection District "Thirty feet of avalanche-inducing snow in a single season isn't uncommon for us. Neither are dozens of wildfires that threaten homes. That's why our engines need to be Tahoe tough. They're built to perform off-road and help us stay on-task, in every emergency. For our departments, serving people is a time-honored mission."
