Firefighter in field managing  a burn

Managing a Prescribed Burn

Carrying out a prescribed burn takes careful planning. A detailed burn plan lays out objectives and how to achieve them. Before putting fire on the ground, conduct briefings and test fires. Once the burn begins, a variety of tools and tactics keep the fire under control and ensure it accomplishes its goals. After the flames have died down, mop-up and patrol wrap up a successful burn.
