Clive Savacool, Fire Chief with South Lake Tahoe Fire and Rescue, led the effort to draft the new plan, not knowing that it would be put into action for real a few weeks later when the Caldor Fire would threaten South Lake Tahoe.
On Episode 9 of the Living With Fire Podcast, Chief Savacool talks about writing and executing the evacuation plan.
