Fire Chief's Message

Chief Michael Ridley

To start off with, I would like to thank the Foresthill Fire Protection District Board of Directors for selecting me to be the next Fire Chief of the District. I’m both humbled and excited to begin working for the District and the citizen’s of the District.

My appointment also came with the appointment of two Assistant Chief’s. Dave Whitt who will be serving in the roll of Operations and Training, and Chief Jed Matcham who will be serving in the roll of Fire Marshal and Emergency Medical Services. This management team is looking forward to meeting the challenges of the District, and serving the citizens who live, work, and visit the Foresthill area.

Our strength is our dedicated personnel, staff, and Board. With this group, you will see us meet the challenges head on and provide you with the best service possible. Watch us in action, both in the community and at our Board meetings. The Board meets on the second Thursday of each month and the meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Fire Administration building.
