COVID-19: Tahoe Network Update

March 20th, 2020

With the threat of COVID-19 at the top of everyone's minds, the Tahoe Network of Fire Adapted Communities has taken the necessary steps to protect staff, neighborhood leaders, and the community. In response to recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), staff are working remotely and all neighborhood leader meetings have been postponed.

We’d like to thank our neighborhood leaders for their cooperation and flexibility during this time and for recognizing the importance of our decision. Our staff will remain available during business hours via email and phone, so please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Given the closure of many businesses and services, the practice of social distancing, and the fear of potential threats, it's important the community comes together (figuratively) to support those impacted.

COVID-19 and its consequences are a reminder that our families and communities need to be prepared for disasters. We should take this time to reflect on the ever-present possibility of disturbances in our daily routines and our abilities to overcome them, wildfire included.

Because we won't be out in the community for the next several weeks, the Tahoe Network will be sending weekly tips via our newsletter on how to use this time indoors to prepare for wildfire. The first in this series will be released on Wednesday, 3/25. We hope you enjoy them!
