Webinar Resources

Managing fuels around your home and property is an essential part of living with fire. Fuel management helps to reduce the risk of ignition while creating safer conditions for emergency responders during fire.

Careful use of prescribed fire is an effective way to remove fuel from your property. Burning (hand or mechanically stacked) piles or broadcasting fire across the landscape can safely reduce fuel stocking and mimic natural wildfire processes. While there are risks, many can be mitigated by planning and working with your local fire and air quality agencies.
