I had the opportunity yesterday for a live interview with KTNV's Tina Patel about wildfire safety. NFPA's 2012 Conference & Expo is going on now in Las Vegas. The local ABC affiliate has been reporting on some important fire and life safety initiatives covered at the conference, including wildland fire.
Firewise and NFPA's Wildland Fire Operations Division have a presence at this large and multi-disciplined conference, including booths on the Expo floor, presentations covering various aspects of wildfire safety, and networking on public education initiatives. It was wonderful to have the added opportunity to get the word out to Nevada residents and visitors about the importance of wildfire safety in this period of high fire danger in many areas of the Western U.S.
