Camps-Emergency Response

grid-15-searchers3crews_lined_upflood_2006

Over the past three years, all the Conservation Camps averaged 460,000 hours working on emergency incidents each year. All incidents not in NDF jurisdiction bring in revenue for the State of Nevada’s general fund. Emergency responses include wildland fire, search and rescue, ice and snow removal, when there is threat to life and/or property, and flood control. Over the past few years we have been requested to assist California and other neighboring states in wildland fire control when their resources are stretched thin. Camp locations within the state requires them to play a pivotal role in initial attack of fires due to their quick response time to many locations throughout the state.
