Washoe County's Emergency Manager, Aaron Kenneston, invites all citizens to participate in this extremely important process that has so much do with our safety as a community.
"Every individual needs to understand and prepare for regional hazards by making a plan, assembling a kit, and staying informed. One way to be ready is by attending one of our preparedness events
Public workshops will be held for citizens to attend, learn about the hazards affecting Wahoe County, and submit their comments regarding the plan. Below are the dates and locations of the events being held.
