What do I need to know?
Prescribed fire and fuel reduction projects are implemented collaboratively by the Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team (TFFT) as part of the Lake Tahoe Basin Multi-Jurisdictional Fuel Reduction and Wildfire Prevention Strategy. All fire districts in Tahoe participate in the TFFT. Use the Find your Fire District page to locate information about defensible space evaluations and chipping services available where you live. Learn how forests burn, how homes burn, and how TFFT partners are working to reduce fire severity on the Understanding Fire page.
