Kudos: Successful 2017 Fire Fest at Lake Tahoe
October 6, 2017
Over 100 volunteers, including the Lake Tahoe Basin Fire Academy cadets, CCCs, county, state and federal firefighters and public and private agency staff spent a busy Saturday, Sept. 30, presenting Fire Fest 2017.
Add to the efforts of our local fire and emergency responders, those of crew members of CHP, CareFlight and CalStar helicopters, the Tahoe Tribune, Heavenly Ski Resort, Southwest Gas, ServPro, South Tahoe Public Utility District, South Tahoe Refuse and Recycling, TRPA, Liberty Utilities and local businesses and the Kiwanis with their savory barbecue… you can see why it's hard to adequately thank everyone!
Hundreds of families attended this year outside the Hard Rock Casino Lake Tahoe. Through equipment demonstrations, Smokey Bear and Sparky the Fire Dog, displays, handouts and lots of fun, we raised our community's awareness about fire prevention, home safety and energy conservation.
The Tahoe Fire Fest Committee sends a sincere thank you to everyone who worked hard to promote, and who came to enjoy, our 2017 event. See you next year!
