Sub-districts and Commissioners

Sub-district boundaries

The Hauser Lake Fire Protection District is a taxing district within Kootenai County, Idaho. It is divided into three political sub-districts, simply referred to by number 1, 2 or 3. The Fire District’s Board of Commissioners includes three elected officials, one from each of those three areas.

See the map posted on this page. The map is also available to view at the fire station. Sub-districts were most recently assessed in 2016 to achieve three areas with similar populations and geographic areas.

  • Sub-district 1 is the L-shaped area on the east which includes Ember’s.
  • Sub-district 2 is the block farthest south, along highway 53, which includes Curley’s.
  • Sub-district 3 includes the area to the north and west and the city of Hauser.
