In the past two years, 654 people lost their lives in traffic crashes on Nevada’s roadways. This number not only represents a tragedy in terms of the loss of life, but also in terms of the lasting effect a traffic crash can have on those who are left to grieve.

On Friday, Oct. 20, the Nevada Highway Patrol will host a Candlelight Vigil Ceremony in Reno. This event will honor the victims and offer support for their families, friends, and involved personnel and guests in a heartfelt ceremony. This ceremony is an opportunity to pay tribute and recognize all of those who were lost to traffic crashes on Nevada’s Highways in 2015 and 2016.

On behalf of the men and women of the Nevada Highway Patrol, the public is invited to attend the Reno ceremony and share in remembrance of those lost. This ceremony will be held at the Nevada Highway Patrol – Northern Command Office located at 357 Hammill Lane Reno, NV 89511. Parking will be available beginning at 5 p.m. and the ceremony will begin promptly at 6 p.m.
