More than 100 volunteers, including the Lake Tahoe Basin Fire Academy, county, state and federal firefighters and public and private agency staff spent a busy Sept. 28 presenting Fire Fest 2013. Add to the efforts of our local fire and emergency responders, those of staff members for the US Forest Service helicopter, CareFlight and CalStar, K-Tahoe, the Tahoe Tribune, Southwest Gas, South Tahoe Public Utility District, South Tahoe Refuse, donations by dozens of local businesses and the Kiwanis with their savory barbecue … you can see why it’s hard to adequately thank everyone!
Hundreds of families attended this year. Through equipment demonstrations, Smokey Bear and Sparky, displays, handouts and lots of fun, we raised our community’s awareness about fire prevention, home safety and energy conservation.
The Fire Fest Committee sends a sincere thank you to everyone who worked hard to promote, and who came to enjoy, our 2013 event. See you next year at the Airport!
