Fire safety meeting Tuesday
A meeting with neighbors, the Lake Valley Fire Department and the Nevada Fire Safe Council is scheduled in front of the Chernuses’ house, 733 Cayuga St., at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The Chernuses and Dugans are organizing a Fire Safe Council Chapter for the North Upper Truckee area from Zuni on the north to Highway 50 on the south. If you live in the area, please attend this important meeting. Bring a chair and your ideas to help make the neighborhood a safer place to live.
There are matching funds available for lot clearing to create a defensible space, and this meeting will tell you how to apply for the funds. Also, we will be discussing the Forest Service lots, neighbors who do not comply with the law, vacant lots and vacation homes. For questions, call Mike Chernus at (530) 577-7750 or Dave Dugan at (530) 573-1052.
