Safety when recreating in the Nevada wilderness, the new mental health hotline and talking about citizen legislators.

This week host Joey Lovato chats with Lacey Hankin, a volunteer with the Washoe County Search and Rescue Hasty Team, about safety when enjoying Nevada’s diverse landscape. After that, reporter Carly Sauvageau explains the new 988 suicide prevention hotline. At the end of the episode, we feature a segment from our friends over at City Cast Las Vegas about citizen legislatures and a lawsuit threatening some lawmakers’ jobs.
