The Colorado Prescribed Fire Council will host a pre-conference workshop Sept 21 in Grand Junction at the Colorado Wildland Fire Conference. https://www.wildfire-colorado.com/.

The Council session will be a set of discussions about topics that organizations should consider before creating a prescribed fire program. The presentations will include a brief review of the Colorado Department of Health and Environment Air Quality permit program and issues of smoke management; Division of Fire Prevention and Control regulations, guidelines and state law; what type of things to consider when starting a new program; and finally special considerations when burning in a highly urban environment.

The Session can be attended in-person or virtually. Please register in advance on the link below for the virtual session using Zoom meetings.
