REMINDER: There remains a temporary Emergency Closure in effect for the Eldorado National Forest through the end of September.

NOTES:
The public is reminded to stay vigilant on current fire conditions. Please continue to adhere to
road closures and any evacuation orders and warnings. A reminder to drive slowly and yield to
emergency personnel in the area. There will be smoke in the respective areas as firefighters continue firefighting operations. If at any time you feel unsafe, please call 911. For tips on returning home after wildfire visit: Returning Home Checklist - Ready for Wildfire

Please go to: www.tinyurl.com/EDSOEVAC for an online evacuation map.

Food & Supplies Limited
Shop before you come home! Food and supplies are limited due to supply chains being cut off during the evacuation period. Refill prescriptions, gas up, and grab groceries and any personal items you might need before heading back to the city.

Transportation
If you need transportation services to get back home, Lake Tahoe Unified School District and Tahoe Transportation District (TTD) are providing bus service from the Reno Shelter located at 4590 South Virginia Street. Passengers will disembark at the Stateline Transit Center and connect with TTD buses operating on regular Routes 50 and 55.

Utilities
Please check with your local utilities company should you have questions regarding your services.

Wildlife
There are a lot more bears in town; bears not used to humans, so they’re not scared of cars and more likely to walk in front of you.

Message from US Coast Guard Sector San Fransico & US Department of Homeland Security
Mariners are urged to avoid all operations on the waters of Lake Tahoe until the impact of area wildfires have subsided.
