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 their 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.
