Fire Safe Council meeting July 10

The Tahoe Paradise Chapter of the Nevada Fire Safe Council will discuss defensible space and lot clearing at a meeting 10 a.m. to noon July 10 in front of 768 Cayuga Street. A barbecue will follow.

Public resource code 4291 mandates homeowners to provide defensible space around their homes. This law is now being enforced.

The Nevada Fire Safe Council has obtained funds to help homeowners remove trees, clear brush and pine needles from their lots. These funds are on a matching basis with up to $1,000 back to the homeowner. The program is on a first come, first served basis and funds are limited. An additional matching grant program is available.

Fire Safe Council coordinator Jessica Mahnken, a Lake Valley Fire Department Defensible Space Inspector and CAL FIRE will be at the meeting. Please bring a chair for this outside meeting.

For information, contact Mahnken at (530) 543-3473. RSVP by July 8 to Mike Chernus at (530) 577-7750 or Dave Dugan at (530) 573-1052.
