May is Nevada Wildfire Awareness Month
May is Wildfire Awareness Month and this year we are focusing on defensible space. Our theme is “Wildfire Knows No Boundaries, Make Yours.”
All month long we'll be sharing some recommendations to help residents create and maintain defensible space. Starting on May 11 we're excited to bring you "Living With Fire Conversations," a Zoom - Facebook Live series. We'll be chatting with knowledgeable folks about fire weather, public lands, weed control and defensible space.
Tune-in for some tips on wildfire preparedness from the National Weather Service – Reno, NV Energy, BLM Nevada, U.S. Forest Service, a Holbrook Highland Nevada Network of Fire Adapted Communities chapter leader and UNR Extension’s Urban IPM and pesticide safety coordinator.
How Living With Fire Can Help
We have many tools available to educators, homeowners, community groups, fire safe councils/fire adapted communities and firefighting professionals to help educate and inform others about mitigating Nevada’s wildfire threat. Presented below are some of the resources available to help make your home and community more likely to survive a wildfire.
