SVFD plans Wildfire Awareness activities
The potential for loss of human life and property due to wildfire is a growing concern in Smith Valley and southern Lyon County, and as a result, the Smith Valley Fire Protection District Board of Directors has passed a resolution promoting Nevada Wildfire Awareness Week on May 4-11. This year's theme is Reduce the Fuel-Reduce the Risk.
