The community of Glenbrook at Lake Tahoe became the first ever in the Tahoe Basin to perform a live fire evacuation drill today.
About five-hundred people live in the gated community.
As the fire trucks rolled in.. phones were ringing.. warning of the danger.
Soon.. Search and Rescue workers began going door to door.
Evacuations began by 2pm.
That's why this community has created defensible space around the perimeter.
Community members have created a fire safe council.. and this drill is just one more safety measure.
Douglas County Sheriff Ron Pierini says.. he hopes other Lake Tahoe communities follow Glenbrook's lead.. because in a vulnerable place like this.. people need to know what to do.
