The weather prescription is at the core of prescribed fire application. Weather is also the hardest factor to control! Placer PBA is hosting this training to help community members better understand weather prescriptions and to introduce available tools and resources to PREDICT when a good weather window may be opening. Improving our ability to predict a prescribed burning weather window will help us all prepare our units in time, apply and obtain necessary permits, meet due diligence standards and intelligently manage risk, and ultimately lead to a more fire-resilient community. The course will use prescription information to help landowners begin building a burn plan. This will be a great course to help prepare landowners planning for spring burns for invasive species management or those interested in preparing a burn plan for an early fall burn.

This course is hands-on and will require participants to bring a laptop, tablet, or cell phone to look up resources during the course. Minor preparatory work may be required. The course will be taught by Placer RCD’s Cordi Craig, Prescribed Fire Program Manager, and Chris Paulus, Forestry Technical Advisor.

This course will be offered twice in two separate formats: 1) as two 2.5 hour weekday evening courses, OR 2) as a 5-hour Saturday morning course. Please register for whichever course setup fits your schedule best. Do not register for both.
