Fire Adapted & FireWise Community

This page contains documents related to our efforts as the Alpine Peaks Residents Association to obtain both Fire Adapted and FireWise Community designations.  We will also post relevant information to achieving these goals on this page, as well as resources with more information.

Thank you to all residents for their contributions to our FireWise recertification for 21/22.  We saw a great effort from the vast majority of our community members to reach this goal.  The FireWise team looks forward to everyone's continuing efforts to make Alpine Peaks wildfire resilient.

Current guidance (as of 25 October 2020) for Alpine Peaks from the NTFPD and the Placer County Sheriff emergency evacuation staff on how to prepare for a wildfire emergency and evacuation of Alpine Peaks is found below.  Please read these two documents carefully.
