Developing a Prescribed Fire Burn Plan: ELEMENTS & CONSIDERATIONS
Download Full Text
Burn plans are a critical component of any prescribed burn. The purpose of a burn plan is to provide a description of the burn area, target weather conditions, hazards that may be encountered, personnel needs and safety, and contacts to make prior to burning. This publication includes a burn plan template (see page 4-7) and explains the importance and purpose of each section of the template. Not every section will need to be included in a burn plan. Each specific prescribed burn will have its own plan that is made up of only relevant sections and information.
