Tahoe National Forest Fire personnel from Truckee and Sierraville Ranger Districts with Smokey Bear, appreciated the invitation and enjoyed returning and participating in the parade during their own community’s 2nd annual Sierra Timberfest in Loyalton, CA. This event was created to help celebrate the rich history of the timber industry in the High Sierra Mountain Valley.
After our firefighters in TNF Engines and all East side Fire Prevention Patrols with Smokey Bear greeted parade-goers and shared valuable wildfire preparedness/prevention information with the community at the USFS Fire Prevention Booth- joined by TNF Conservation Education staff, they were invited to cheer on the local ball players and Sierra County Sheriff's Office Sheriff Mike Fisher, throwing out the first pitch at the Sierra Valley Little League Season Opener. The opportunity to engage with our communities we serve is always appreciated!
