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.

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.
