NCLFC is in attendance at the California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony Saturday, October 17, 2015. This year’s tribute honored the sixteen fallen heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our state. Their names were etched onto the polished limestone wall at the California Firefighters Memorial which honors the more than 1,200 individuals who gave their lives in the line of duty since California became a state. This impressive, thoughtful and time honored ceremony was attended by hundreds of firefighters from throughout the state of California and the U.S.

This special tribute, on the grounds of California’s State Capitol, honors not only the sacrifice of those that have been lost, but also the determination and commitment of those who fight on every day in service to their community.

The NCLFC Board of Directors is honored to announce that Ms. Jacquelyn Chaves, a student at Sierra College, Nevada County campus is the 2015/2016 recipient of its $1000.00 NCLFC Scholarship.

Ms. Chaves, an exceptional individual, was highly recommended by teachers and associates alike. Through her hard work, attention to detail, maintaining a better than 3.95 commutative GPA, and taking sole responsibility of raising her siblings, Jacquelyn met all the criteria that the NCLFC demands of students interested in training for public safety careers. Qualifying careers include but are not limited to law enforcement, fire protection and/or emergency medical technicians (EMT’s).

The NCLFC Scholarship is part of the Osher Initiative for Colleges and its Matching Scholarship funds through the Sierra College Foundation. The Sierra College Foundation hosts its Annual Award Ceremony this year on Wednesday, September 16, 2015.  Invitations are forth coming.

Guns & Hoses Golf Tournament

The Guns and Hoses Golf Tournament is one of the NCLFC’s two yearly fundraising events held at the Alta Sierra Country Club in June.  Players come from the community at large as well as from law enforcement and fire agencies.  A trophy is awarded yearly to whichever agency foursome scores best!  Participants compete in a putting contest and closest to the hole contest for cash prizes. A hole in one contest is sponsored by Auburn Ford with the grand prize being a Ford vehicle.  Something participants look forward to every year is the “Guns and Hoses” golf hat given to each player. Each golf cart is equipped with squirt guns so that everyone can get a little wet!  Buffet lunch and dinner are served with prizes awarded during dinner to the winners. A silent auction is held for many prizes which are generously donated by the local merchants and the community.

NC Law Fire Participates In Keeping Kids Safe Event

In another example of the Nevada County Law Enforcement & Fire Protection Council supporting local charities and community efforts, the NCLEFPC participated in the Keeping Kids Safe event held in Grass Valley on May 10, 2014 and attended by Marc Klaas, founder of the Polly Klaas Foundation.

The Gold Country Kiwanis hosted its 11th annual Keeping Kids Safe Festival at the Grass Valley Fire Department Station No. 2 on Sierra College Drive on Saturday, May 10th. The purpose of the festival was to provide a chance for the public and law enforcement and fire agencies to get together.

We are excited about the coming year!

The Nevada County Law Enforcement & Fire Protection Council is gearing up for what we believe will be a banner year in 2014 for our organization!

We have just launched our new web site along with a Facebook page and Twitter account in order to better communicate with our wonderful sponsors, benefactors and the Nevada County community at large – who we ultimately serve.

Since 2001, we have contributed well over $650,000 to various agencies in Nevada County which has resulted in much-needed equipment and training for our men and women in law enforcement and fire protection.

Some of the items and training we’ve been able to pay for through our fundraising efforts includes:

  • CA State Parks Intoximeters
  • Nevada County Fire Chief Wildland Training
  • Nevada County Snowmobile/Trailer (Winter Rescue)
  • Grass Valley Fire Department Thermal Imaging Cameras
  • Washington Fire Department Remodel
  • Graniteville Fire Department Fire Truck
  • Keeping Kids Safe Program
  • Nevada County Search & Rescue Incident Command Trailer

…and much, much more.

We are proud of the work we do and hope that our new foray into online media will create new opportunities to let the public know about our goals and will eventually lead to more donations and sponsorships to help pay for sorely needed equipment, training and more for our local protectors in law enforcement and fire fighters.

Thank you for your support!
