The Lake Valley Fire Protection District (LVFPD) is a special district formed in 1947 in the County of El Dorado, California. LVFPD is comprised of 86 square miles of mountainous terrain and provides emergency services for the majority of the unincorporated areas of Lake Tahoe Basin’s south shore. The Lake Tahoe Basin (LTB) is located approximately 200 miles northeast of San Francisco, California and 60 miles South West of Reno, Nevada, nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. In addition, LVFPD maintains a contract of annexation, of approximately 5 square miles, with our neighbors in Alpine County, just south of our district.
