‘Compost Your Combustibles’ event Saturday

Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District is hosting a kickoff event at “Compost Your Combustibles” from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday to raise awareness on becoming a Fire Adaptive Community. Fire District Staff and The Zephyr Fire Crew will provide Wildfire Landscape information and there will be a breakfast and lunch to welcome residents that participate on the opening day.

“Because of the importance of not only being aware but taking action to adapt homes to our extreme fire environment the Tahoe Douglas Board of Trustees issued a resolution that the entire month of May is Lake Tahoe Basin Wildfire Awareness Month” said Chief Ben Sharit.

“Fire Chiefs around Lake Tahoe are concerned about an extraordinarily dry summer and the high risk of wildfire this year,” says Eric Guevin, Fire Marshal of the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District. “There are easy steps homeowners can take to reduce the fuels and reduce the risk of wildfire invading their property while increasing the safety of their family, and we have an exciting Kickoff event planned to help them learn how.”

Compost Your Combustibles runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday through Aug. 3. It takes place at the Heavenly Mountain Resort at Boulder Lodge Parking 140 South Benjamin Road off of Upper Kingsbury Grade.

This popular program is made possible by the cooperative efforts between the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District, South Tahoe Refuse, Heavenly Mountain Resort, Kingsbury General Improvement District, F &B Inc. and the Tahoe Village Homeowners Association.
