  • Elko, Carlin, Crescent Valley, Lamoille, Spring Creek, Eureka
  • Nevada Department of Wildlife
  • Nevada Division of State Parks (providing labor for projects)
  • Non-profit organizations such as: volunteer fire departments, senior centers (snow removal and fire wood collection), community centers, and cemeteries
  • Fire rehabilitation efforts on local fires including seeding, soil stabilization and damaged fence repair
  • Landowner assistance with fence repair and fuels reduction though the assistance of the fire protection and resource management officers.


Emergency Response

Over the past three years, Carlin Camp has averaged 37,290 hours working on emergency incidents each year. All incidents not in NDF jurisdiction bring in revenue for the general fund. Emergency responses include wildland fire, search and rescue, ice and snow removal, when there is threat to life and/or property, and flood control. Over the past few years we have been requested to assist California in wildland fire control when their resources are stretched thin. The Carlin Camp’s location in the northwest, requires them to play a pivotal role in initial attack of fires due to there quick response time. Currently Elko County is NDF jurisdiction for fire protection.
