The Nevada Wildland-Urban Interface Fire Summit was held each year from 2007 until 2012, bringing together community, firefighter, and county representatives from each of the extreme-, high-, and moderate-wildfire hazard communities. During the Summit, participants discussed ways to help reduce the wildfire risk to their communities and to promote action at the local level. View the Summary Reports from each year’s effort in the Program Features section below.
Due to a lack of grant funding, the annual Summit was not held in 2013. Instead, the planning committee explored the idea of taking the Summit on the road and holding a series of Regional Conferences in central locations throughout Nevada in an effort to increase community member participation. Beginning in May of 2014, 7 conferences were held throughout Nevada. Click here to see a report, summarizing the results of the 2014 Living With Fire Regional Conferences.
Plans for 2015 are under discussion. Check back here for updated information or contact Sonya Sistare at 775-336-0271.
