Texas Hills Estates is located in the foothills of the northern Sierra Nevada mountains of California at the 2000 to 2500 foot elevation. The vegetation is a mix of fuel types that is rated by CAL FIRE as a Very High Severity Hazard. The steep terrain, composition, density, structure, and heavy fuel loading of the vegetation adjacent to and within Texas Hill include all of the elements for a catastrophic wildfire. We are fortunate to have five El Dorado County Fire Protection District stations within a less than 15 minute response of our area. However, we feel it necessary to take action to prevent a disastrous fire from developing in our community.

The Council has developed a Wildfire Evacuation and General Preparedness Plan should a wildfire occur near or in our area of the intensity that requires an evacuation.
