Cost Share Agreements
  • Authority and process outlined in cooperative agreement.
  • Authority to negotiate agreement outlined in the parent agreement.

Nevada’s wildland fire agencies work collaboratively through our Master Agreement.

The agreement assures this effort through the formation of the NEVADA FIRE BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

State Fire Protection

Program

Vision & Authority

  • “To protect the citizens, visitors and natural resources of Nevada from unwanted wildfire, through public education, natural resource enhancement, capacity building at the community level, and emergency service delivery” as authorized by “Nevada Laws on Forestry and Fire.”
  • State fire protection delivery is divided into two categories:
    • Non-NDF Districted Lands
    • NDF Fire Protection Districts
slide6
NRS 472.040:

(a) Supervise or coordinate all forest/woodland and watershed fire control on state- and privately-owned lands, in Nevada, working with federal, county, local governments and private citizens and private associations.

(b) Administer all fire control laws in Nevada outside of townsite boundaries.

(c) Assist and encourage creating legally constituted fire protection districts where they are needed and offer guidance and advice in their operation.

(d) Designate high hazard forest/woodland areas of the state requiring regulations on roofing materials. Reference NRS 472.100

(e) Adopt and enforce regulations relating to standards for fire retardant roofing materials used in the above designated areas.

(f) Establish a radio cache within each region for the purpose of emergency response.

(g) Grant administration for fire prevention, fire control, and training of fire fighters to fire departments and colleges / universities.

NRS 472.041:

Enforce Uniform Fire Code (UFC) regarding clearance of vegetation around structures within designated high hazard forest/woodland areas including any land within ½-mile radius surrounding such an area. Reference 472.040 (d)

NRS 472.043:

Does not reference fire control specifically. However for the purpose of impacts by fire NRS 472.043 does reference maintaining and restoring forest/woodland and watersheds that once accomplished would be fire adaptive healthy ecosystems as referenced in “A Collaborative Approach for Reducing Wildland Fire Risks to Communities and the Environment” and the associated “10-Year Comprehensive Strategy and Implementation Plan.”

Non-NDF Districted Lands

NRS 472.050

NDF Fire Protection Districts
  • NDF performs direct wildland fire suppression and prevention duties for approximately 8.1 million acres of land in the state. Within NDF Fire Protection Districts NDF may carry out the responsibilities as they relate to the prevention and suppression of structure and other fires. Attorney General Opinion No. 265, dated December 13, 1961 clearly addresses the question of the authority of the Division of Forestry in preventing and fighting fires.
  • The State Forester Firewarden through formal county resolution has the authority to provide protection from structure and other fire. For fires within NDF Fire Protection Districts, the state bears the financial responsibility for all costs resulting from actions taken by NDF in suppressing fires and in minimizing damages to exposed life, property, and natural resource values.
  • The State Forester Firewarden through formal county resolution has the authority to provide protection from and mitigating non-fire incidents. For emergencies other than fire in NDF jurisdictional Fire Protection Districts, the state bears the financial responsibility for all costs resulting from actions taken by NDF in mitigating the emergency in minimizing damages to exposed life, property, and natural resource values.

Lands owned or controlled by the federal government or any agency of the federal government are excluded. Lands within the exterior boundaries of any incorporated city are also excluded from NDF jurisdictional fire protection districts.

common cost share methods
Common Cost Share Methods
  • Mutual Aid
    • If an incident exceeds the mutual aid period of 24 hours all resources will be billed retroactively for the full period from the time of initial dispatch. If an incident is less than 24 hours and/or controlled within the 24 hour time period no billing will occur.
  • Resource type – you pay for your engines and I’ll pay for the crews.
  • Acres Burned –resources utilized across all direct protection areas are considered equal for the entire fire, % acres burned applied to actual costs.
  • You-order, you-pay
