LVFPD provides fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to a permanent population of approximately 12,500 people, with seasonal tourist fluctuations that swell the population to over 40,000. The economy in the area is based primarily on tourism. Skiing, snowboarding, camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and summer water sports bring thousands of tourists to the area from all over the world each year. Elevations within the LVFPD range from 6,224 feet at Lake Tahoe to nearly 9,738 feet at Mt. Tallac, west of South Lake Tahoe. The area is cut by several steep drainages, with the Upper Truckee River being the largest.
