The Oregon Prescribed Fire Council (OPFC) is hosting four virtual working sessions to map capacity for prescribed fire, protecting communities from smoke, and connecting the prescribed fire community to Oregon state fire policy.
Session 1: Mapping Capacity for Prescribed Fire, part 1: Basic Resources & Needs for Planning a Burn
Session 2: Mapping Capacity for Prescribed Fire, part 2: Strategic for Building Capacity
Session 3: Protecting Your Community from Smoke
Session 4: Oregon Rx Fire Policy: 2021 Legislative Session
(Attendance at part 1 not required to participate)
Last summer the OPFC mapped the agencies involved in permitting a prescribed burn through the lens of liability. At this working session we will map different pathways for a private landowner to develop burn plans and tap resources to conduct burns. We will consider different models, from the Prescribed Burn Associations, trainings like TREX, and full service contracts as well as resources such as support from ODF Foresters, NRCS, and others.
