Purpose: One of Nevada's most pressing natural resource issues
is the threat of wildfire to human life and property. Much of Nevada is
considered a high fire hazard environment, possessing all the ingredients
necessary to support intense and uncontrollable wildfires. Within this high
hazard environment are individual homes, subdivisions, and entire communities.
Unfortunately, many Nevada homeowners are not prepared to survive a wildfire.
The Living With Fire program was developed to inform Nevadans about how they can
live safer in high fire hazard environments. Living With Fire is not a wildfire
prevention program. Despite the best efforts of firefighting agencies, much of
Nevada's wildlands will continue to burn. The purpose of Living With Fire is to
teach people how to safely coexist with wildfire when it does occur.
