University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Mission Statement: To discover, develop, disseminate, preserve and use knowledge to strengthen the social, economic and environmental well-being of people.
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"...see how they work together here.
