Great Plains Fire Tour


Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota; March 2017

During the Great Plains Fire Tour, we will spend three days each in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and South Dakota. While in each state, participants will team with local prescribed fire practitioners to deliver ecologically meaningful fire to the landscape. Participants will be exposed to many of the different fuels, topographies, leadership styles, landownership patterns, prescribed fire tactics, and organizational formats that are present throughout the Great Plains. Time will be used on non-burn days to tour fire research sites, past wildfire locations, and fire management plans.

The Module will serve as a Single Resource Boss trainee (firing boss and engine boss), and will also lead the Fire Effects Module.
