Florida Prescribed Fire Council Meetings Announced

All three of Florida’s Prescribed Fire Councils have scheduled their fall meetings.

If you are interested in learning more about prescribed fire or would like to become a certified burner, you may wish to attend a council meeting. Topics can include the basics of prescribed fire burn plans, what to do about smoke on a road, fireline first aid, predicted weather conditions for prescribed burning, government cost shares to help landowners prescribe burn and talks given by expert burners on successes and failures that they have had. Additional information on meetings will be posted for each council as they occur on the following FL Forest Service website: http://www.floridaforestservice.com/wildfire/rx_councils.html
