TRIBAL FIRE DEPARTMENT
Office (530) 698-1405
Mobile (530) 417-6973
Welcome to the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Tribal Fire Department. Our team of firefighters responds to emergencies on and off Tribal lands. Since 2015, Tribal Fire has been able to respond to many incidents as a wildland fire hand crew.
We have a great group of men and women who are continually training, maintaining physical fitness, and ensuring that we are “Fire Ready!” at all times. As a Bureau of Indian Affairs “Red Carded” fire crew, we can respond to any request for service anywhere in the United States. We have relationships with nearby agencies in El Dorado County and the greater Sacramento areas, where as allies we serve the public with professionalism.
Our department consists of 10 permanent and eight-10 seasonal firefighters. We focus on prevention and suppression of wildland fires. We have the tools, training, experience, and leadership to have a Type 2-IA hand crew. We adhere to the National Wildfire Coordinating Group standards with several of our team also certified in other emergency response specialties such as Technical Rope Rescue and Swift Water Rescue.
If you are interested in a relationship with us for networking or employment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fire Chief Dave Whitt
The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Tribal Fuels and Fire Crew’s (Tribal Fire) primary mission is to protect lives and property of the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Rancheria and surrounding communities. Tribal Fire will strive to deliver the best protection from the adverse effects of fire, emergencies, and dangerous conditions created by either man or nature in our local communities including assisting our allied agencies.
Tribal Fire will remain a vital part of the El Dorado County first responder resources. Tribal Fire will consist of trained personnel in both wildland and safety, dedicated to assist in wildland fuel reduction, fires, and other emergencies in our community, local, regional, state, and federal jurisdictions as well as our partner tribes. Tribal Fire will accomplish this by having and using:
• Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Red Card sponsored wildland firefighters
• National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) trained and qualified wildland firefighters
• National Incident Management System (NIMS) Wildland Fire Qualifications System
