Tahoe Basin Community Wildfire Protection Plan Survey

Tahoe Residents: We need your input! Take the Lake Tahoe Basin Community Wildfire Protection Plan survey to help identify wildfire risks as we update the Basin’s Community Wildfire Protection Plan.

The Lake Tahoe Basin Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is being updated to reflect the needs of local communities around the basin. The update is a collaborative effort between federal, state, and local agencies, along with community stakeholders, to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires in our area. The last update for the Tahoe Basin’s CWPP was nearly 7 years ago and a lot has changed on the landscape in those seven years including the completion of many fuels reduction projects, substantial development of Fire Adapted Communities, and the impacts of the Caldor Fire in South Lake Tahoe.

The purpose of the CWPP update is to ensure that the plan remains current and reflects the changing conditions and needs of our community. It will incorporate the latest technology and best practices for wildfire management and prevention, as well as the input and feedback of community members. CWPPs are essential as they help reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires and increase the resilience of communities.

We encourage all community members to get involved in the planning process through the basin-wide survey. This survey is an opportunity for fire districts to hear from residents about concerns and priorities related to wildfire risk in our community. Community input will help guide the development of the updated CWPP and ensure that it reflects the needs and values of our community. Public engagement is crucial to the success of the CWPP update, and we look forward to working with the community to create a safer and more resilient Lake Tahoe Basin.

Stay tuned for more information on the CWPP update!
