North Tahoe Firefighters Association

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation
Published on March 31, 2020

The North Tahoe Firefighters Association has been an integral part of the North and West Shore since the 1950s. The Association provides two scholarships for local high school seniors, holds a raffle to purchase firefighting equipment, and provides a relief fund for its firefighters and families. The Jim Thompson Memorial Academic Scholarship honors a beloved Fire Captain from Kings Beach who later became a Division Chief with North Tahoe Fire. The Paul Scannell Memorial Vocational Scholarship is in honor of a Firefighter/Paramedic who worked as a nurse at Tahoe Forest Hospital and as a heli-ski guide. Paul was killed in a helicopter accident in the Ruby Mountains.
