2016 Starker Lecture Series-Ed Smith

Living With Fire

Thursday, April 7, 2016 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

The Living With Fire program began in 1997, when Ed Smith and Paul Tueller of University of Nevada, Reno and Fire Chief Loren Enstaad of the Sierra Front Wildfire Cooperators applied for and received a Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station / Nevada Cooperative Extension Joint Program grant. Together with Nevada’s firefighting organizations, they developed a set of consistent wildfire threat reduction recommendations for Nevadans. Since then, these recommendations have been shared with thousands of homeowners living in fire prone areas throughout the country. Today, Living With Fire is a collaborative effort involving many organizations and is managed by University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. Living With Fire also works in a complementary and collaborative fashion with the national “Ready, Set Go. Program”  Provider Fair: After the lecture, a public provider fair with offer members of the community the opportunity to meet with a variety of vendors that offer services and information about fire safety and prevention.
