Fort Bidwell Fire Protection District

The Fort Bidwell Fire Protection District (FBFPD) is a California special district for fire protection. The commissioners are elected by voters in the district for four year terms. The district is an autonomous, local government under the laws of California, and is not a department of Modoc County. Operations are conducted by the Fort Bidwell Volunteer Fire Department. The District was founded in February 1950.

The district gets about $ 7,500.00  per year as its calculated share of the property taxes on owners within the district.  This includes secured, unsecured, supplemental, homeowner's exemption, and timber tax income (See Modoc Special District Estimated Tax Allocations (pdf)). This tax money just covers Workman's Compensation and other required insurance, and utilities. Other costs are borne from fund raisers and donations to the Fort Bidwell Volunteer Fire Department. Donations to the Fort Bidwell Fire Protection District are IRS deductible because the District is a government body.

The 2010 US Census for the Fort Bidwell ZIP code, shows 214 persons living in our district with 149 housing units, 96 occupied. See Demographics for more detail.
