INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District has implemented Fire Aside’s Defensible Space Evaluation software as part of an expanded commitment to improve residents’ wildfire resilience, funded by Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation.
Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation is a nonprofit that is dedicated to supporting the Tahoe region, and its Tahoe Fire Safe Initiative was created to fund fire prevention strategies in the Tahoe Basin, focusing on people and property.
“Fire prevention and safety remains one of the Community Foundation’s top priorities,” said the Community Foundation’s CEO Claudia Andersen. “The Fire Aside software directly addresses the mission of our Tahoe Fire Safe Initiative and is an important way for us to invest in the safety of our community now and into the future.”
