The Reno Fire Department wants to remind citizens while the water levels in the Truckee River are no longer above normal it is still important to take precautions while on or near the river. Always use a flotation device while tubing or swimming in the river. The water can be very cold and it's easy to be overcome and hypothermic even in hot temperatures. Pay close attention especially to children when enjoying the river.
For more useful tip and information, please visit our Water and River Safety page.

With the cold weather, many residents like to take advantage of using a wood stove or fireplace to burn wood or pellets to help heat their homes. Did you know that there is a Burn Code determined each day by the Washoe County Health Department based on our current air quality that tells us if we are allowed to burn?
