Fire Protection District
Fallon is located 60 miles south and east of Reno, Nevada, on US-95. The department protects a population in the city of 8,000 people, and in Churchill County of 16,000 that are spread out over 250 of the 5,000 square miles of barren desert.

In August 1997 the department was awarded a Insurance Services Offices (ISO) Class 1 rating within 1,000 feet of all hydrants and a Class 3 rural rating (shuttles, drafting, and relays) within five miles of all four county fire stations. Both ratings are the lowest ever given a volunteer fire department. The rural rating is the lowest ever given any fire department, paid or volunteer. Class 8 applies for 5-8 miles from a station; Class 9 for 8-10 miles from a station, and Class 10 for beyond 10 miles.

The department has the 25th ISO Class 1 ever awarded out of approximately 88,000 ratings. Fallon was awarded the first ISO Class 3 out of only two ever given to departments without a water system. Learn more about our ISO rating and the difference it makes for Churchill County.
