On March 12, 2018 The Nevada Network of Fire Adapted Communities (i.e., The Network) held its fourth annual conference in Reno, with 106 participants. The Network was created in 2014 to assist members of Nevada communities as they work towards the goal of becoming fire adapted. It was created as part of the Living With Fire Program and was managed by University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. During the conference, The Network transitioned to the Nevada Division of Forestry, under the direction of Michael Beaudoin, Network Coordinator.
Funding for this event was provided by a Community Fire Assistance Agreement from the Bureau of Land Management – Nevada State Office and a State Fire Assistance Grant from the Nevada Division of Forestry and U.S. Forest Service. Funding for continental breakfast, lunch and refreshments provided by a Good Neighbor Citizenship Grant from State Farm Insurance. A full summary report will be posted here soon.
