The districts currently represented are:

  • Beckwourth Fire Protection District

  • City of Portola

  • Gold Mountain Community Services District

  • Sierra Valley Fire Protection District

Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)

Early meetings led to an agreement that there was sufficient interest in an organized study of greater collaboration among the districts. In order to move forward, the board of each district considered an engagement agreement in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).  As prescribed in the MOU, its purpose is, “…to establish and participate in a framework for cooperative and collaborative action to explore ways to strengthen and improve fire and emergency services throughout their service boundaries by reorganizing how those services are provided.”  In January 2020, all participating agencies officially adopted the MOU and each agency appointed two representatives to the group.
