University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Living With Fire Program is hosting the second annual Nevada Network of Fire Adapted Communities Conference, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Nov. 9 in Reno. Attendees will learn about the progress of The Network, as well as hear firsthand accounts of the emotional and financial costs of recent wildfires from several speakers, including Carlene Anders, a volunteer firefighter, and North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District’s Fire Chief Mike Brown, who served as incident commander on several large fires in the area.
