Fire Prevention/Forest Fuels Management

forest fuels treated

In 2004 the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District and the Nevada Fire Safe Council commissioned the “Nevada Community Wildfire Risk/Hazard Assessment Project” , which serves as the Community Wildfire Protection Plan for the Fire District.   The Assessment Project surveyed seven geographical areas of the Fire District and assigned a Fire Hazard Rating Score of low, moderate, high, or extreme.  Of the seven areas, five scored high, one (Stateline) scored moderate, and one (Chimney Rock) scored extreme. The primary recommendation of the Assessment Project was the removal of excess flammable forest fuel and the creation of neighborhood fuel breaks.
Subsequent to the release of the Assessment Project, the Fuels Management Division was created to address the hazards identified as being the responsibility of the Fire District.
