Lastly, I am proud of the fact that we consider ourselves an integral part of the Community of Fernley and are working to enhance this presence.

Board meeting minutes:
Commercial Fire Inspection
The Fire District conducts routine fire and life safety inspections on an annual or biennial basis, depending on the property type and associated hazards. Such inspections lessen the threat of fires and promote the public’s safety and welfare.
To help cover the cost of these safety inspections, and to encourage prompt compliance with fire codes, the District’s fee schedule is used. The fee also covers Operational Permits provided after the business is inspected and confirmed safe. Contact the North Lyon County Fire District Office at 775-575-3310 or firstname.lastname@example.org more information about fire inspections and the fee structure.
Inspection Program Highlights: The North Lyon County Fire Protection District has partnered with Fire Recovery USA and FIREHOUSE Software to provide state-of-the-art equipment and electronic fire inspection reporting and invoicing. Inspection notices, invoices and permits will be electronically delivered and tracked to the email address you provide our inspectors.
Inspection notices will come from email@example.com. Invoices and receipts will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. You will have the option of several payment methods. Simply follow the instructions provided in your e-mailed invoice.

The Fire Chief and his staff are responsible for citywide enforcement of the adopted fire code, NRS and local ordinances as they relate to life and safety. Other responsibilities include public education, fire investigation, business license inspections, pyrotechnic permitting, pre-incident survey programs and code compliance for large community events.

North Lyon Fire County Fire Protection District is currently developing a CERT program in corporation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
