Fire line management and mop up
This is a hands-on operational training to provide landowners with exposure to the skills to responsibly implement a prescribed burn from start to finish on private property. This workshop builds on last year’s classroom session, which introduced participants to the planning process of prescribed burning as a management tool. Attendance at last year’s workshop is not a requirement to join this workshop.
Participant groups will be paired with an experienced firefighter and embedded in the process for hands-on experience and Q&A.
You will learn how to:
Construct fire lines
Use a drip torch
Appropriately apply the resources most ranches have on hand (e.g. UTVs, water tanks, etc.)
Scout, ignite, mop up, and patrol burn units
Learn fire fighting tactics.
