As all residents of the South Lake Tahoe area learned during June 2007 in the response to the Angora Fire, disasters can happen quickly and the amount of time we have to respond may be short. As a community, many people said they were not prepared or did not know what to do. The members of the Emergency Management Community Council saw this need and worked together to create something specific for our South Lake Tahoe community. This guide has been created to help the local residents of the South Lake Tahoe area become more prepared for disasters. The topics and information contained in this guide are specific to the South Lake Tahoe Area. This guide was created by locals for locals to specifically address disasters most likely to hit our area. Please make the time to read this document, become informed, and be more prepared.
The South Lake Tahoe Emergency Management Community Council (EMCC) was established in 2006. The EMCC is a multi-disciplinary group of emergency responders in the Lake Tahoe Basin which includes El Dorado, Douglas and Alpine Counties. The council members collaborate for the community benefit to identify emergency management issues, develop plans based on the National Incident Management System (NIMS), work on enhanced communication and collaboration, carry out planning and exercises, and work with local agencies to develop a unified community approach to emergency management.
We all have a role to play in being prepared. The EMCC hopes you will find this information useful and will help you and your family find security in being as prepared as possible for the future.
