Agency Administrators and Line Officers are being tasked to aggressively implement fuels management programs. This consists of gaining additional skills to effectively manage evolving fuels management plans that may need to meet a variety of objectives.
Participants of the National Interagency Prescribed Fire Training Center (NIPFTC) Agency Administrator Workshop will receive hands-on experience in prescribed fire and will interact with skilled prescribed fire practitioners and successful fuels program managers from across the country. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about policy, planning, and implementation of fire to enhance their programs. Experienced and diverse cadre members also offer insight to management challenges, such as how to restore fire to the landscape and meeting objectives for multiple resources using prescribed fire.
