Kudos: Thanks for supporting Lake Tahoe Basin Fire Academy (opinion)

The Lake Tahoe Basin Fire Academy and Lake Tahoe Community College would like to thank the community for supporting the Fog Nozzle IPA release party and Fire Academy scholarship fundraiser event on Jan. 5 at South Lake Brewing Company.

The academy and the college rely on the generosity and support of our local community for the success of our program, and this event fully exhibited the extent of that support.

We are proud of our fire academy graduates and are excited that donations from South Lake's Fog Nozzle release will assist them in their endeavors to become firefighters, and especially those wanting to become paramedics/firefighters in our community.

In addition to all of the super-supportive community members who were in attendance, we'd like to thank the following businesses and individuals: South Lake Brewing Company; Local Freshies; Verde Rotisserie; Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team/Fire Prevention Information Team; Kevin Marcy; South Lake Tahoe Firefighters Association; Lake Valley Fire District Foundation; USDA Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit; South Tahoe Public Utility District; Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association; Olivia and Asad Rahman.
