Facebook: Creating and maintaining defensible space can result in a large amount of "green waste" consisting of leaves, weeds, branches, and shrubs that need disposing of. Residents can dispose of this waste in a variety of ways, including taking advantage of free green waste collection events in their communities. Often, fire agencies provide these opportunities throughout the year. Follow your local fire agencies to learn more.

Facebook: Dry cheatgrass is probably the most easily ignitable vegetation on Nevada’s rangelands. If started on a windy day, a cheatgrass fire can produce flames in excess of 8 feet and travel 4½ mph. To reduce the risk of wildfire to your home, and property, remove all cheatgrass within 30 feet of your home, and incorporate an integrated management program to control the plant. Learn about cheatgrass at the link below.
