South Lake Tahoe to Host Wildfire Safety Expo on May 13


SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CA, May 2, 2023 – South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue will host the 6th annual Wildfire Safety Expo on Saturday, May 13 from 11am-3pm at South Tahoe Middle School at 2940 Lake Tahoe Blvd. The Wildfire Safety Expo is a free, community event to provide information on how to be fire-safe during this upcoming wildfire season. Each year, wildfire behavior progressively becomes more ferocious. Living in a mountain town means we need to be extra vigilant with our preparedness. 


Local agencies will be available to hand out preparedness information materials and other cool free giveaways. In addition, Smokey Bear will be there to greet attendees and a static display of our fire apparatus will be staged. Food trucks will be on-site with food and drinks for sale, including Sombrero’s Taco Truck and Get Rad Pizza Truck.
