2021 TPE Online Conference Burn School

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 9 am - 2:30 pm


This online workshop is designed to meet part of the training requirements for becoming an official crew member on TPE-sponsored prescribed burns. Following successful completion of the course, students will also need to participate in a short field session on equipment and fire suppression techniques with their local chapter. Students will also need to serve as an apprentice on two prescribed burns in order to be certified as a TPE crew member.

 

Led by instructors Rob Baller, Scott Fulton, and Andy Sleger, the course covers the following major topics:

  • Fire ecology
  • Influences on fire behavior
  • Prescribed burn techniques
  • Safety considerations
  • Crew roles and case studies

Registration for the burn school is a separate $25 charge from the 2021 TPE Online Conference.
