Fort Bidwell Fire Protection District - Demographics
The Fort Bidwell 96112 ZIP code boundaries are close to the district boundaries, so the 2010 US Census data for the ZIP code 96112 counts most residences in the district. The main population areas are the Town and the Reservation.
The 2010 US Census shows 214 persons in our ZIP code with 149 housing units, 96 occupied. The Town shows a population of 173 with 126 housing units, 79 occupied. The Reservation shows a population of 94 with 49 housing units, 34 occupied. The ZIP code counts are much less than the sum of the town and reservation, so it would seem that part of the Reservation is counted for the Town or some other counting problem exists.
The district is a patchwork of local, State, and Federal responsibility areas, but the Fort Bidwell Fire Volunteer Fire Department is usually the first responder due to proximity. Technically, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is responsible for the Reservation, but the BIA currently has limited fire capability. See Fire Operation Areas for more detail.
