Learn more about reasons for using prescribed fire, preparations for conducting a fire, necessary tools, roles of each burn crew member, and ignition patterns. Join us at 7 pm on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at the Paint Creek Cider Mill. Please RSVP to email@example.com by Tuesday, January 20.
I’ll be bringing gear that we use to conduct prescribed burns, including backpack pumps, protective clothing, and hand tools. Don’t miss this opportunity! We are committed to the safe use of prescribed fire in our township parks and we want you to know about the process involved in conducting a prescribed burn.
If you can’t make it next Thursday, head over to the Prescribed Fire page to learn more about how we use prescribed fire to maintain our natural areas. The Michigan Prescribed Fire Council also has lots of information on their website (firecouncil.org)
