Also known as the Green Valley Lake Fire, this inferno threatened Arrowbear Lake and its surrounding communities like never before. A total of 1,359 firefighters were assigned to the Slide Fire, including many former Arrowbear Lake firefighters. After burning a total of 12,789 acres, the blaze was contained later that month, but not without destroying 201 buildings in the process.
Since then, the community of Arrowbear Lake has flourished. As our community grows, the Department will continue to work hard to meet the various challenges that we may face, and we will continue to strive to provide excellent service to Arrowbear Lake and other surrounding communities. We are always looking to recruit new members, so if you are interested in exploring that possibility, please visit the recruitment section of our website.
