The Network is an organization of University of Nevada Cooperative Extension that seeks to put Nevadans living in high fire-hazard communities in touch with the resources they need to work toward becoming fire adapted. In response to the growing wildfire threat, with over 8 million acres burned in a single year in the last decade, The Network seeks to unite like-minded individuals who want to prepare their homes and communities before a wildfire occurs.
Residents of member communities can join with neighbors through collaborative efforts, learn of funding possibilities and of fuels management opportunities through local, state and federal agencies, offer fire services a safer and better chance of defending their homes and take comfort in work done to give their communities a greater chance of surviving a wildfire.
The Network operates with support from the Bureau of Land Management, Nevada Division of Forestry, U.S. Forest Service, and University of Nevada Cooperative Extension.
