Washoe County has scheduled an open house meeting to seek input on its mitigation plans for hazards, which include earthquakes, fires, and floods, among other disasters.

The 5-year disaster plan seeks to address risks in the area and outline activities on how to decrease the risks. The public is invited to learn about the process and to share perspectives on how the county and its regional partners can better address hazards that impact the community.

The meeting is scheduled at 6 p.m. July 10 at Reno Fire Station No. 11, 7105 Mae Anne Ave.
