The Tahoe Network

About The Tahoe Network of Fire Adapted Communities

The Tahoe Network of Fire Adapted Communities (TNFAC) is an organization of Tahoe Resource Conservation District in partnership with the Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team. The TNFAC seeks to connect residents of Lake Tahoe Basin communities with the resources they need to work toward becoming fire adapted. In response to the growing wildfire threat, the TNFAC seeks to unite like-minded individuals who want to prepare their homes and communities before a wildfire occurs.

Interested residents can join with neighbors through collaborative efforts, learn about fuels management opportunities through your local fire department/protection district, and take comfort in work done to give their communities a greater chance of surviving a wildfire. Together, these efforts will change the culture of the community to one of fire awareness and preparedness.

The TNFAC operates with support from the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network and Cal Fire.

Community Success Stories

We will feature stories here about actions that community groups have taken to reduce their wildfire threat and work toward becoming a Fire Adapted Community. These are often collaborative efforts between the community and their local fire departments/protection districts and agencies. Do you have a story you would like to share? Let us know by contacting Marybeth Donahoe at mdonahoe@tahoercd.org.
