It was with great pleasure that I attended the recent Living With Wildfire (University of Nevada) conference in Reno, Nevada.  Firewise Communities office staff ensured that one of ourFirewise Communities books was donated as a door prize.  Firewise Communities was acknowleged in the program as a donor.  There were also Firewise materials available at a table in the expo area for attendees.NWUI-logo-2012-300x297

Jake Tibbitts with the Nevada Dept of Natural Resources in Eureka County oversees the two recognized Firewise Communities/USA sites in Nevada.  He presented inforamtion at the conference about the compatibility of Firewise Communities and Firesafe Councils. He also shared some of their sucess stories with the audience.  The Nevada State ForesterPete Anderson also presented at the conference.
