Area's we Serve

North Lyon Fire primary response area is the 174 square miles in and around the City of Fernley.  We service this area from two stations strategically located in the population centers for faster response times.  We also have robust Mutual Aid agreements with our surrounding fire agencies and counties that increase the number of firefighters that can respond to emergencies in our region.
