Living in the Sierras brings the potential for large scale emergencies from winds, heavy snow, flooding, wildfire and even avalanche in certain areas.  These types of emergencies will overwhelm local resources.  To prepare, your local Fire Department is asking for community help by way of the following.

Curriculum will include 9 hours of instruction taught by members of the South Lake Tahoe Fire Department.  Applicants will be expected to commit their time and will be called upon in times of natural disaster, large scale emergencies and times of need in the South Lake Tahoe area.  Due to staffing and equipment limitations the South Lake Tahoe Fire Department will be reliant on local citizens’ abilities to assist in their neighborhoods with basic first aid and triage.  We will also need STAT team members to be well versed in our command structure, emergency first aid, lifting/moving techniques, use of extinguishers, flood safety and building collapse.
