Advisory Board

The Network Advisory Board consists of appointed and elected representatives from key stakeholders in the Fire Adapted Community implementation sphere. The Board advises the Executive Coordinator of the needs of the Network members, partners or cooperators. The Board seeks support within and outside of the Network to implement Fire Adapted Community development and implementation actions. The Board also assists in the design and procedures associated with the Network program and chapters, as well as setting the strategic direction and decision making at the programmatic design level for the Network Community Chapters. The Advisory Board reports to the Nevada Fire Board, an oversight Board consisting of fire service representatives from local, state and federal fire service agencies and organizations that are charged with overseeing the Nevada Wildland Fire Cohesive Strategy. Below is the current Board configuration and representatives.
