Huntington Fire now has an ISO Protection Class Rating!

HLVFD has earned it's first ever protection class rating which should greatly reduce the amount you pay for fire insurance! Areas on the east of the Lake within 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant and all of the Dowville Tract now has a six (6) rating based on amount of water available for a fire from fire hydrants. The rest of the Lake has been assigned a 6Y rating which is based on how much water the Fire Department can bring to a fire.

Should your tract wish to improve your protection class rating contact the fire chief about requirements of your water system.

Residents are encouraged to contact their insurance agents right away!

Huntington Fire invites your comments on our 2014-2015 OHV Grant Applilcation!

Your fire department has applied again this year for a grant from the State of California's Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division to purchase equipment and accessoires for our 'side-by-side' UTV. This new equipment will extend the mission of our Teryx 4 to serve people on OHV snowmobile trails during the winter as well as for off-highway medical rescues in the Sierra National Forest during the spring, summer and fall.

The grant includes funds to purchase snow tracks, "cab enclosure", heater, fenders, rearview mirror, a snow plow, and a highlift jack kit.

We need your ideas and support!

You can read HLVFD's preliminary application, which will be available on-line on March 3rd at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov. We encourage you to make comments and provide input to help us improve our program and/or grant application between March 3, 2015 and April 6, 2015.

E-Mail your comments and suggestions to BOTH the Fire Chief and the Grant Administrator at California Parks OHV Division, Walt Saborio.
