Wildfire Awareness Month Community Event

 

On May 18, Southern Nevada District Fire and Aviation joined with our interagency partners to celebrate Wildfire Awareness Month with a half marathon and 5K-race event at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

This event was a great success with the maximum number of participants (300) signing up almost immediately for the on and off-pavement routes that featured stunning views of sagebrush, boulders as big as mountains and knotty pine trees.

Afterwards, participants stayed for a family-friendly event following the race where participants and other Red Rock visitors explored fire engines and other apparatus and chatted with federal, state and local firefighter representatives.
