Strategic Plan

North Lake Tahoe Fire District Strategic Plan 2019 cover image

This living document is a collaborative effort from the Fire District Staff and Local 2139 members to assist with guiding the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District into the future of our ever-changing community. I view our personnel as our most valuable asset, striving to continuously improve our organization while being responsible for delivering our mission statement, “To Protect Life and Property through efficient delivery of quality community services.”

The identified goals and objectives as outlined in this Strategic Plan will guide us into the future however, we acknowledge there will be unforeseeable issues that will arise and impact how our Fire District operates and provides service to the community. These issues will offer both challenge and opportunity to our Board of Directors, Fire District administrators and personnel, who will need to review, assess and work together to identify options and find solutions. It is these opportunities for growth and development, guided by the structure provided in this Strategic Plan that will keep us united and fluid as an organization, constantly growing and adapting alongside the community.

In closing, I would like to express my gratitude to the individuals who spent countless hours working together to create this important guiding document, as it represents our organization and our future.
