The recent Caldor and Tamarack fires were a wake-up call to the very real and potentially devastating threat wildfire is to our great Tahoe Basin. Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District believes our community can improve our level of protection and response through a FIRE RESCUE HELICOPTER PROGRAM.
Currently, there are no dedicated aerial resources for our area, but by implementing one in our District that serves the Lake Tahoe Basin and surrounding areas, we could dramatically increase our ability to save lives, properties, infrastructure, wildlife, and the National Treasure that is Lake Tahoe.
The goal is to raise $60M to implement 2 fire rescue helicopters and the supporting infrastructure to serve the Tahoe Basin. Click here to read more and donate to their efforts.
