North Tahoe Fire Protection District issues Homewood Evacuation and Life Safety Report

HOMEWOOD, Calif. (October 4, 2016) This report was commissioned by the North Tahoe Fire Protection District (“NT Fire”) for the purposes of providing an evaluation and clarification of Homewood’s commitments and mitigation and to provide further details as needed for construction standards, fire safety measures, evacuation procedures and shelter‐in‐place concepts to insure that the Project will not result in any significant adverse impacts on wildfire evacuation risks on the West Shore during construction or operation and will not exacerbate any existing wildfire evacuation risks in the Lake Tahoe region given the changed circumstances in the Project Area since the County’s and TRPA’s approvals in 2011.

Furthermore, to accomplish the goal of not exacerbating current evacuation systems for neighboring residents and visitors, this report evaluates Homewood’s commitment to providing areas of refuge to increase life safety protection in the event of a fire requiring regional evacuation, in which residents outside of the Project boundary can find refuge in a wildland fire scenario.
