RENO -- (LAS VEGAS, NV) – The Professional Firefighters of Nevada (PFFN) recently embarked on a new partnership with the “Living With Fire” Program, a community educational effort developed and managed by the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension to encourage Nevadans to live safer with the rising threat of wildfires. The 17 locals within the PFFN will be participating in the campaign this year by helping to deliver the established message to their communities.

The partnership was established due to the direct link between the PFFN and wildfires and the ability for structure firefighters in Nevada to reach out to their multiple rural communities where wildfires are most prevalent.

This year’s campaign message is “Reduce the Fuel – Reduce the Risk” and focuses on raising awareness on the necessary steps residents can take to protect their homes from wildland fires.

The primary outreach methods the PFFN locals are embarking upon is is the distribution ofcampaign posters throughout Nevada communities to fire stations, government centers, libraries, community centers, grocery stores, and convenience stores.

PFFN President Rusty McAllister looks forward to this new partnership and says, “This is an important message, and we are proud to support any effort that encourages fire safety in the community. Wildland fire safety is often overlooked, so it is vital to get these messages of prevention out to our residents.”
