Who We Are

The Council is a mix of natural resource professionals, land managers, and others who support the use of prescribed burning.  

Its goals are to bring people together to:

  • Promote public education about the benefits of prescribed fire as a land management tool now and in the future. 

  • Increase expertise in prescribed fire by sharing technical and biological information.

  • Promote safety, training, and research in the art and science of prescribed fire. 

  • Review prescribed fire practices, regulations, and policies and suggest improvements.

  • Promote best management practices that minimize water, smoke, and air quality impacts from prescribed fires.
