Rx FIRE 101 WORKSHOP: Colfax April 1

Placer Prescribed Burn Association (Placer PBA) was founded by the Placer Resource Conservation District. Placer PBA is dedicated to equipping landowners with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to implement low-complexity prescribed burns. This workshop is free of charge and will cover topics including permitting, liability, fire effects on native plants, heat management, landowner resources, and others. A panel of experienced instructors teach the course. This is a classroom workshop and no live fire will be used, however, training burns will be offered throughout the season so that landowners gain on-the-ground experience.

Date: Saturday, April 1

Time: 0800 – 1630

Location: Colfax Elementary School, 24825 Ben Taylor Rd., Colfax

Cost: FREE

Description: The Placer PBA Rx Fire 101 workshop series are tailored to private landowners hoping to implement prescribed burns on their property. Topics that are covered include permitting, liability, basics of fire, heat management, cultural burning, and unit prep and mitigation. It is nearly impossible to learn how to implement prescribed burns through the classroom, which is why Placer PBA pairs all of their workshops with demonstration burns to give landowners opportunities for boots on the ground experience. Please note that this is a classroom workshop only and no live fire will be used. Please contact Cordi Craig with any questions (cordi@placerrcd.org).
