Fire Station 1 is located at 702 Kingsbury Grade in Stateline. It houses three personnel who are able to respond in a Type I engine or a Type III brush. During the summer months the ladder truck is located here also. Winter weather requires relocation to Station 3 due to road conditions.
Fire Station 3 is located at 193 Elks Point Rd. in Zephyr Cove. It is the main fire station and houses four personnel. It is also the location of the administrative offices. Station 3 is by far the busiest and crews can respond in a Type I engine, paramedic ambulance, and ladder truck. The rescue personal watercraft are also located here.

The rescue boat is located here in the winter months and is available 365 days/year. In the summer time the boat is in the water to facilitate quicker response.
