The San Bernardino County Fire Protection District reorganized in July 2008 and created the North Desert Regional Service Zone. The North Desert Regional Service Zone is a component unit of the San Bernardino County Fire Protection District which is governed by the County Board of Supervisors. Within the North Desert Regional Service Zone, Service Zone FP-1 Red Mountain was authorized by the Board of Supervisors in December 1964 (originally under CSA 30 Zone FP-1) along with a special tax. Service Zone FP-1 provides fire protection services to the community of Red Mountain. These services are funded by a special tax not to exceed $332 per parcel as approved by the voters in March 1985. The current special tax rate is $181.41 per parcel and is presently applicable to 72 parcels. In addition to the special tax, San Bernardino County Fire Protection District receives a general fund allocation of $385,992 to provide fire protection services to Service Zone FP-1 through a contract Kern County Fire Department. Data for 2012 is not available as there was a change in interpretation of reporting standards which returned in 2013.
