FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT

"Welcome to the Mammoth Lakes Fire Protection District. Whether this is your home, your home away from home, or your first visit, we are dedicated to the protection of your lives, your property, and your peace of mind. It is our mission to respond promptly with sufficient personnel, equipment, and competency to make things better when they appear to be at their worst. This is only possible through the contribution of your hard-earned tax dollars; you have my personal commitment that we shall be good stewards of those resources. The stations, fire engines, and equipment are yours – we’re simply the caretakers, so please feel free to drop by your firehouse and see what we’re up to."

– Fire Chief Frank Frievalt

Wildland Urban Interface

The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) is a region where developed areas and wildland vegetation meet or intermingle, and where wildfire danger can be extremely high.

Wildland Urban Interface

Because wildfires are more likely to occur in WUI areas, critical prevention strategies are necessary. A collection of resources can be found here.

Fire Prevention

The Fire Prevention Division focuses on educating the public about the benefits of proper safety practices, and identifying and eliminating hazardous conditions that can pose a threat to life, property and the environment.

Mammoth Fire defensible space

IS YOUR

SPACE DEFENSIBLE?

Defensible space can significantly improve your home's chance of surviving a wildfire. It's the buffer you create between your residence and the trees, grass, shrubs and plants that surround it. Defensible space has a critical role in slowing and/or stopping the spread of wildfire.
