Thinking is often the difference between a safe summer in Lake Tahoe and a dangerous wildfire event. Every summer millions of campers, hikers, beach goers and homeowners make the right decisions — thinking first by extinguishing a campfire correctly, trimming tree branches or making sure their off-road vehicle is equipped with a spark arrestor.

We live in, and visit, a place of immense natural beauty and near limitless recreation. By thinking first, you keep it that way.
