Winter Rescue Team Trains At Bucks Lake Fire

I would like to thank the Bucks Lake Volunteer Firefighters Foundation, Captain Carl, and Twin Rivers Polaris in Yuba City for your support in the delivery of a new Polaris General,  “over the snow vehicle”.  This new vehicle will replace the ATV that was loaned to us about 6 years ago.  Our new General can really help to access and provide support to an injured person in the winter months at Bucks Lake.

With the help of Jay and Barbara we provided training in the safe operation of this “Buggy” and the use of the attached rescue sled.  There were about 20 people from the “locals” to the Snowdrifters Snowmobile Club in attendance. All in all a great day.

Honorable mentions go to Jack Brown, Exe. of the Capt. Carl trust, and Bill Fortna  of Twin Rivers Polaris,  you guys are the best.  Thank you for helping Bucks Lake Fire Department.

Let’s do the snow dance and prepare for a great winter at Bucks Lake.  Snowdrifters Poker Run is scheduled for February 3 rd.  See you there




Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow

The first of the winter storms is upon us and the rain snow mix will be just the start of our winter season.

Call Box between doors at station

I need to remind you that its a long way out if you get hurt or need emergency services in the winter time.  So plan to have SAFE fun this winter and if you need help Call 911

Remember there is an Emergency Call Box at the station between the roll up doors, just push the button and it will connect you to the Plumas County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center.



Training with the Rescue sled last winter.  This ATV/Sled is the over snow transport if your injured.  Patient is loaded inside and towed to the summit where the ambulance awaits.  On a clear day you will be transported by Medivac Helicopter.

Have a great winter and a safe one!  See you on the snow.
