The Prescribed Fire Specialist (PFS) will play a pivotal role in a new programmatic effort to scale up the prescribed fire workforce across California. Most of the prescribed fire projects the PFS will support will function as cooperative burns or Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges (TREX), which provide experiential training that builds robust local capacity for fire management and offers professional fire practitioners a more holistic perspective—while implementing treatments that support community and ecological objectives. The PFS will direct prescribed fire operations for the California Chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC), which includes managing controlled burns on TNC preserves, supporting partner burns, developing Prescribed Burn Unit Plans and Site Fire Management Plans, and may involve coordinating fire suppression activities on rare occasions.
