Elko City Mayor Reece Keener hosted Deputy Fire Chief Jack Snyder on, “Elko, Live” to present the 2018 Fire Department Year in Review. The fire department is making plans to build a second station to serve additional homes and businesses on the northside. Fire prevention efforts are paying off as well as the use of fire-resistant building materials and early alert systems to reduce the number of catastrophic fires. Rescuers are forming a peer support network with other professionals statewide to combat a deepening problem of PTSD, depression and addiction in the fire service and elsewhere.
