Event description

Description

You are invited to attend this year's Nevada Network of Fire Adapted Communities Annual Conference. Registration is FREE and includes conference materials, continental breakfast, refreshments, and lunch! This year, it's all about wildfire evacuation. You will hear real-life experiences from firefighters and residents who were involved with recent wildfire evacuations, learn how to properly evacuate a home and an entire community, how firefighters and other emergency responders can work with residents to develop an effective evacuation plan, and how to plan and conduct an evacuation drill in your community. While such drills are useful to the residents of a community, they also allow the fire services to identify and address potential problems well in advance of a wildfire. You will also have an opportunity to visit with organizations providing emergency assistance who can provide useful tips and tools to help you.

Who should attend? All who are interested in helping their community, county, or area of responsibility reduce the wildfire threat and move towards becoming a Fire Adapted Community:

    • Network members
    • Community leaders, HOA representatives, homeowners or anyone interested in joining The Network
    • Network Partners from local, state, federal and volunteer fire departments
    • Representatives from the landscape and construction industry
    • County emergency managers, planners, open space managers and others

Limited funding is available to reimburse travel expenses for Nevada residents representing their community or volunteer fire department who must travel more than 50 miles one way to attend. Requests are taken on a first come, first served basis.

For more information about the conference, please contact Jamie Roice-Gomes at roicej@unce.unr.edu or 775-336-0261.

If you need special accommodations or assistance, please contact Christine Nazarechuk at nazarechukc@unce.unr.edu or 775-336-0269 by Monday, March 20th.
