Wildfire Preparedness

Wildfire Preparedness

Located in the middle of tens of thousands of acres of wildland, with hundreds of wooden homes and commercial structures, the Olympic Valley community has a very high exposure to catastrophic wildfire losses.

High wildfire hazard conditions exist in most areas of the Olympic Valley Community. Nearly the entire Valley is within the “Very High Fire Severity Zone” as mapped by California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's Fire and Resource Assessment Program; and much of the community’s residential neighborhoods have high ladder fuel hazards as determined by LiDAR mapping and field surveys.


The highest-priority project in Olympic Valley is to reduce fuels and maintain low-flammability conditions around structures. Being prepared for wildfire by hardening your home, creating defensible space, removing green waste from your property, and understanding what to do in case of an evacuation is critical to allowing firefighters to safely and effectively defend your home from an oncoming fire.
