Nevada Wildfire Awareness Week will kick off April 28 at Mills Park in Carson City.
The event runs from 10am to 2pm and gives people a chance to talk to local firefighters, learn how to use a fire extinguisher, discuss insurance questions and visit with vendors displaying products and services.
There will also be activities for children, including meeting Smokey Bear, visiting the Fire Safety House and playing at the Ember House, which illustrates how flying embers can be lodged in various places.
They can also explore firefighting helicopters and fire engines.
