As of June 22, 2023, Eastern Plumas Rural Fire Protection District (EPRFPD) reported that they did not have enough members on their roster to maintain a safe response to the community. As a result of this combined with subsequent discussions by the EPRFPD board, the district has decided to suspend fire response operations as they restructure, recruit and reassign duties for the district over the next six months. During this time frame, EPRFPD has invoked a mutual aid agreement.
In speaking with Plumas County District One Supervisor Dwight Ceresola, it was noted that plans are being made to determine the future of the district. The topic will be up for discussion once more at the next meeting of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, August 1 at 10 a.m. The agenda is available online here.
