Join us for the 2024 NE-MW Regional Prescribed Fire Workshop August 18-22, 2024

Prescribed Fire Councils

Prescribed Fire Coordination

Prescribed Fire Work Group was formed by the NE RSC to promote an increase in the amount of beneficial fire on the landscape (prescribed and “managed” fire – where legally allowed, and utilizing smoke management best practices). This work group will explore and implement solutions to improve coordination for prescribed fire in the Northeast – with a purpose of sharing information and providing support for sub-regional and state activities.
