The 6 p.m. presentation at the Skyline Fire Station, 3050 Skyline Blvd., will include a half-hour video on reducing the ember threat to your home.
The presentation will be by Ed Smith, a natural resource specialist with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. The event is in collaboration with the city of Reno Fire Department and Washoe County.
"Flying embers played a huge role in the spread of the Caughlin Fire," Smith said. "Embers are often the main reason homes ignite during wildfire."
Wednesday's session is free and open to the public.
