Workshop will be led by NCRCD Prescribed Fire Program Manager Joaquin Pastrana and Jo Ann Fites-Kaufman, certified California Burn Boss, retired US Forest Service wildland and prescribed fire scientist and practitioner.

Description: Visit a prepped burn unit or an actual prescribed burn in progress to learn what do before, during, and after a burn. Before: setting up water, getting the help you need, gathering permits, setting up logistics for volunteers and notifying neighbors. During: giving a briefing, test burn, the different roles people play on a prescribed burn, smoke management, and the firing process. We will also discuss the steps taken after a prescribed burn is complete including mop-up, monitoring, evaluation, and maintenance.
