The District covers some 70 square miles of the San Juan Ridge, including the historic communities of French Corral, North Columbia and North San Juan. It includes all territory between the South and Middle Yuba Rivers, from Bridgeport in the West to roughly the east entrance to Malakoff Diggins state Park in the East.

The primary station and District Headquarters are at Station #3 on Tyler Foote Road. We also have stations in North San Juan and French Corral.
Volunteer firefighters serve the District, using a duty officer system so that immediate response is provided, either from Station 3 at Tyler Foote Road or from the duty officer’s home in a District engine. We serve approximately 2600 residents using some seven engines or vehicles, several equipped with compressed air foam equipment; one vehicle is a 4000 gallon water tender. In 2016, the District earned an upgraded ISO (Insurance Services Office) rating of 6Y .
