We must be aware and prepared for wildfires. Remove flammable plants or debris such as wood piles, wood mulches, dead plants and pine needles 5 feet around your home; create a lean, clean and green zone 5 to 30 feet beyond that; and make a wild land fuel reduction zone beyond 30 feet.

Next, join Smokey Bear and the Lake Tahoe Basin fire rescue agencies at the Wildfire Safety Expo on Saturday, June 17th from noon to 3pm at the TJ Maxx parking lot located at the “Y” where Highways 50 and 89 intersect.  

Participating agencies include: South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue, Lake Valley Fire Protection District, Tahoe Douglas Fire, CalFire, US Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, South Lake Tahoe Police Department, California Highway Patrol, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department, Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team, South Tahoe Action Teams, California Tahoe Conservancy, Master Gardeners, Tahoe Resource Conservation District, American Red Cross, California Conservation Corps, South Tahoe Public Utility District, California Conservation Corps, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, Liberty Utilities, South Tahoe Refuse and Recycling Services, Kiwanis Club of Tahoe Sierra, Fallen Leaf Lake Fire Department, South Lake Tahoe Humane Society and TJ Maxx.

The event will include information on creating your own home evacuation plan, preparing for fire, creating defensible space around your property and more.

The Wildfire Safety Expo will provide fun for the entire family with special appearances by Smokey Bear.
