SCV Burn Workshop

This workshop is for people who attended the TPE Prescribed Burn Workshop at the February 2021 conference and those who plan to attend the Workshop at the 2022 conference.

This event is the hands-on outdoor portion of the Workshop.  Successful participation in the virtual workshop, this outdoor training, plus helping on two TPE burns as an apprentice, provides the qualifications to be a crew member on TPE burns.

The training follows the TPE Burn Policy and is taught by TPE volunteers.   

Today's class includes a review of

  • Prescribed burn planning
  • Weather considerations
  • Tools and equipment
  • Burn techniques
  • Crew assignments
  • Fuels and firebreaks
  • Burn techniques

We will then walk the burn units and review the importance of mop up.

Bring

Wear comfortable and warm cloths.  We will not burn today, but will be outside. The actual burn will be after the first hard frost kills the plants.
