Fuels Division

It is the mission the LVFPD’s fire and fuels management program to protect life, property and the environment from the effects of a catastrophic wildfire. The LVFPD’s objective is to work closely with experts in resource management and return the forest to estimated native conditions. Without fire in the ecosystem, the forest in Lake Tahoe Basin has experienced a high amount of dead or dying trees as a result of overstocking, drought, insects and diseases. Fire management personnel must take an active role in the restoration process to create a forest remnant of pre-fire management in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
