In a blink of an eye everything can change! It is so important to have an emergency kit put together and a plan for the whole family. Get the kids involved so everyone is on the same page.

Being prepared in case of emergency can be overwhelming. Thankfully, there are resources to help!
Here is an emergency supplies checklist from National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to make it a little easier.https://www.nfpa.org/~/media/files/public-education/resources/community-tool-kits/get-ready/hand/e/supplies_kit_checklist.pdf

The Elko District's fire program transferred a Type 4 fire engine to Elko County Fire Protection District last week. This particular engine carries an 850 gallon tank and sprays up to 100 gallons/minute. As part of the BLM’s Rural Fire Readiness (RFR) program, the district was able to transfer this vehicle to enhance the firefighting capabilities of our wildland firefighting partners. The RFR program allows the BLM to provide training and equipment to our partners – at no cost to them - so we can continue to safely and efficiently suppress wildland fires together. #ReadyForWildfire #WildlandFire BLM Photos
We had an early Halloween scare yesterday, about 1500 acres of the Hunter Fire on the Ranch. A big thanks to Elko County Fire Protection District, Nevada Division of Forestry, and Bureau of Land Management - Nevada for finding all the put away fire stuff and getting right on this one! Looks pretty good today.
