Throughout the year, the Storey County Fire Protection District is involved in a number of activities aimed at fire prevention. Additionally, the department hosts a variety of community outreach workshops, such as CPR training and fire safety lectures at the local schools.
We encourage all citizens of Storey County to get involved and to join us periodically for fire safety and prevention workshops. They are fun, and they’ll help you help us keep our businesses and homes safe!
