June is Wildfire Awareness Month in the Lake Tahoe Basin.  We are continuing last year’s campaign by asking all Lake Tahoe residents and visitors to “Think First to Keep Tahoe Fire Safe”.  Here are a few ways to do just that:

  • Attend one of the many events taking place in June.  See a calendar of events here.
  • Sign the pledge to “Think First” here.
  • Learn how the Lake Tahoe Network of Fire Adapted Communities can help you in your neighborhood here.
