No Open Fires



Please no open fires as dangerous fire conditions are expected! For more information about fire danger and what is allowed, please visit our covenants page.

Information on Defensible Space:

Unprecedented weather conditions in Truckee and Tahoe this past winter means we are heading into a summer of dangerous fire conditions. Compounding this is a forecast calling for more extreme weather swings with high winds and lower than normal humidity resulting in drier conditions.

Since 2007, Tahoe Donner has actively pursued improved defensible space through the Defensible Space program implemented by the Forestry Department. If you have any concerns or questions about your defensible space, our friendly forestry staff will be glad to assist. It is important to review your defensible space and maintain your property on an annual basis in preparation for a potential wildfire event. The requirements of our defensible space program mimics a low-intensity wildfire, which helps reduce the risk of a wildfire moving from the ground to the tree canopy.

Even tiny fires can quickly spread into a major problem. Extreme caution should be used when using outdoor fire pits and BBQs this summer! When enjoying these outdoor activities, be sure to have rapid response items in place to extinguish embers, including but not limited to: a water source (a bucket of water if not near a hose or spigot), a rake, and a shovel.

Learn how you can prepare your property for defensible space and reduce potential fire hazards this summer by visiting Tahoe Donner’s forestry pages at tahoedonner.com/forestry and CAL Fire’s website ReadyForWildfire.org. Additionally, it is encouraged that each household review their emergency preparedness and evacuation plan in the event of an actual emergency. A hard copy of this plan is available at our Member Services and Architectural Standards offices. Call our professional Forestry Department at 530-587-9432 with further questions.
