Visit this section frequently for updates on the process of deconsolidating shared fire services between the City of Reno and Washoe County.

Key Facts Regarding Fire Deconsolidation

On June 28, 2011, the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District Board of Fire Commissioners voted to terminate the Interlocal Agreement with the City of Reno to provide fire services for the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District effective July 1, 2012.

Once the decision to terminate the contract was made, the City of Reno established a deconsolidation transition team to oversee and maintain service delivery to citizens, assess and control expenses, and efficiently process a streamlined transition. 

City of Reno residents are and will remain protected by the Reno Fire Department. When deconsolidation occurs there will be no interruption in services for Reno residents. The Reno Fire Department has the necessary personnel, resources, equipment and training to maintain current levels of emergency response and prevention services within the city limits.
