Fire Safety Prep from TMFPD

April 15, 2023
Defensible Space and Fire Behavior

The South Truckee Meadows/Washoe Valley Citizens Advisory Board (STM/WV CAB) meets every other month at the Washoe County Library at 15650A Wedge Parkway. The meeting can be accessed in person or via ZOOM. If you are interested in learning what is happening in Commission District 2, visit for meeting notices and agendas.

A full re-cap of the April 6th STM/WV CAB Meeting can be found in the April Issue of our HVCA Newsletter.

At the CAB meeting on April 6th, TMFPD personnel presented an extensive briefing on Fire Safety Preparation.

Due to the extremely wet winter, vegetation growth may turn into a fire threat. Vegetation cleanup and creating defensible space is key to being proactive. BE PREPARED!

While it’s not the same as being there (in person or over ZOOM), slides from this informative presentation are pictured below.  We thank TMFPD for sharing them!
