Its no question, this year’s fire season has left us all feeling helpless and concerned. The relentless flames and permeating smoke is too close for comfort. And the lives of firefighters and our neighbors at risk are evergrowing. The Tahoe Prosperity Center is the regional community and economic development non-profit for the Tahoe Basin. They work with local businesses, jurisdictions, non-profits, and community members to provide solutions to economic issues unique to our region. They’ve launched a community-wide fundraising campaign dedicated to installing more fire prevention cameras in our community.
They’ve Done This Before
The Tahoe Prosperity Center has done this before. They raised funds for the first fire camera network in Lake Tahoe. Those cameras have helped prevent over 100 local fires. The entire network of cameras, called ALERTWildfire consists of nearly 1,000 specialized cameras and covers areas in California, Oregon, and Nevada.
The need for more cameras is growing. First responders like CAL Fire use ALERTWildfire cameras to quickly discover, locate and monitor wildfire behavior during containment and help evacuations. With increased at-risk areas, they need funds for additional cameras and to cover the costs to install and maintain the network. The Tahoe Prosperity Center is asking companies and community members to help raise 1 million dollars in order to add more fire cameras to the AlertWildfire network to help watch over our community.
