About US

The Central Lyon County Fire Protection District is comprised of more than 630 square miles, with an approximate population of 33,000.

The operating budget is approximately $4.5 million annually. The District extends from Mound House at the Carson City line, east to Silver Springs at the Churchill County line and is bound to the north by Storey County and the North Lyon County Fire Protection District. The southern boundary is Township 15 North.

The district is organized under the provisions of NRS Chapter 474 and is under the direction of an independent generally elected Fire Board.

The Central Lyon County Fire Protection District is a full-service fire district providing fire protection, hazardous materials response and mitigation, public education, fire investigations, plan review, emergency medical services with mutual and automatic aid locally, regionally and nationally.

Some of our value-added services include our EMS response and transport program that includes ambulance subscription program, 12 lead EKG testing and telemetry, advanced cardiac life support and public CPR training.

Planning for the future is a goal of the district. Our first “green” station was completed in November 2008 and our newest renovation was completed in spring 2018.
