Northshore Fire Protection District’s Fuels Management Team is Making LC Communities Safer

Applications are Being Accepted on an Ongoing Basis

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 have 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).
