Plumas County Fire Services Discussion Given the tragic wildfires of the last couple of fire seasons, extensive challenges faced by the fire service agencies, and the transitional state of many of the fire providers around the County, the Commission has taken a particular interest in supporting positive change in fire service structure. In May 2018, LAFCo staff attended the Gold Mountain CSD Board Meeting to present on options available to fire providers. A town hall was held in June 2018, where LAFCo staff presented the history of the fire protection districts and options for restructuring. The Commission invited representatives from the various fire districts to its regular meeting on October 15th meeting to continue the conversation and receive a status update on each agency, including the challenges that are being faced presently and any potential for change of service structure that the agency is considering to address these issues.
