From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m, Chuck Heard, the preserve’s Fire Management Officer, will conduct tours of the Fire Center as well as provide information to help park residents and neighbors to protect their homes from wildland fire. There will also be opportunities to learn about Mojave National Preserve’s fire management plan as well as law enforcement and emergency medical services in the preserve.

The Fire Center is located on Black Canyon Road across from the Hole-in-the-Wall Information Center in Mojave National Preserve.
