JANUARY 16, 2019: ADOPT A HYDRANT PROGRAM
The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District has over 1000 fire hydrants within our fire jurisdiction. With the recent snowstorms and more on the way, we will be working on clearing fire hydrants. The 2012 International Fire code section 507.5.4 and NLTFPD resolution 13-1 states that fire hydrants must be free of obstructions and immediately visible. If fire hydrants are located on private property, it is the homeowners or Homeowners Association (HOA) responsibility to keep the fire hydrant(s) clear.
JANUARY 2, 2019: CAN YOUR ASHES! Residents with wood burning heating appliances may apply for a free ash can.
As the temperature drops outside and we think about using our fireplaces and heating stoves, it’s important to remember a few safety tips and precautions. Heating equipment and improper ash disposal are leading causes of home fires during the fall and winter months.
