TULE RIVER FIRE DEPARTMENT
Serving the Tule River Tribe.
Fire season is usually May to October
Highlights and History; for the past couple of year our budget from the BIA has been less and less due to Congress cutting budgets across the board. With that being said, we are down to minimal personnel in the Wildland Division. We currently staff two type VI light engines and rotate personnel for off Reservation fire assignments to better their knowledge and gain fire experience in other fuel types and regions.
