The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District has over 1000 fire hydrants within our fire jurisdiction. With the recent snowstorm and more on the way, we will be working on clearing fire hydrants.

By Adopting A Hydrant closest to your home or business and keeping it clear of snow and debris you can help to make our community safer. We appreciate the members of our community who already maintain hydrants in their neighborhood and encourage everyone to participate. Please complete the Adopt_A_Hydrant_Form.pdf, attach a photo and email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you notice a fire hydrant that is not marked with a “FH” pole, please let us know by calling our Fire Prevention Bureau at 775-831-0351, ext. 8107.

If you notice a damaged or leaking fire hydrant, please call Incline Village General Improvement Public Works at 775-832-1203.

Also, please keep rooftops clear of excessive snow and watch for forming cornices that can pose a dangerous situation. Ask for professional snow removal services to help with this. We also recommend knowing where your gas meter is located and keeping it clear.
