Volunteer Prescribed Fire Crew Training, Dec 12, 9 am – 2 pm

If you are interested in joining our volunteer prescribed fire crew, join us for our Volunteer Prescribed Fire Crew training workshop. We will cover reasons for using prescribed fire, preparations for conducting a fire, necessary tools, roles of each burn crew member, and ignition patterns. Weather permitting we will do a small demonstration or mock burn after lunch. Snacks will be provided, but please bring your own lunch. RSVP required to bvanderweide@oaklandtownship.org or 248-651-7810 ext. 401 by Wednesday, December 9 at the latest.
