The Tule River Fire Department serves to protect the lives and property within the Tule River Reservation. The fire department’s jurisdiction consists of a vast area of carrying terrain. Our mission is to provide a rapid response to mitigate all types of fires, medical aids, traffic accidents, natural disasters and public assistance to the community.


Our Fire Prevention program focuses on public education and outreach services, fire investigation, and fire code compliance; in order to minimize loss of life, property and environmental damage. We aim to reduce the magnitude of emergencies by anticipating and responding to the ever changing needs of our diverse community. We strive to provide the utmost quality of services utilizing well trained and highly motivated personnel who understand the traditions and values of those we serve.
