The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District, an active stakeholder in the protection of our Wildland Urban Interface, will be taking part in the 3-day International Association of Fire Chiefs WUI Conference at the Peppermill Resort in Reno on March 24-26.

There will be representatives from state and local governments, community planners and the like attending the conference.

Attendees will be taking advantage of the many education tracks, hands-on exercises, and an exhibitor expo showcasing the latest in wildland gear and equipment, as well as the networking opportunities with colleagues who work in all facets of the WUI.

My staff and I will be speaking at several of the classes and events taking place during the conference.
