Virginia Prescribed Fire Council Updated:05/2019

Mission
To foster cooperation among all parties in Virginia with an interest or stake in prescribed fire; for the purposes of optimizing burning opportunities for the benefit of natural ecosystems and wildlife, and to reduce the risk of damage from wildfires.

What we do

The Council is a mix of natural resource professionals, land managers, and others who support the use of prescribed burning. Its goals are to bring people together to:

  • Promote public education about the benefits of prescribed fire as a land management tool now and in the future. 
  • Increase expertise in prescribed fire by sharing technical and biological information.
  • Promote safety, training, and research in the art and science of prescribed fire. 
  • Review prescribed fire practices, regulations, and policies and suggest improvements.
  • Promote best management practices that minimize water, smoke, and air quality impacts from prescribed fires.
