PRESCRIBED BURNING

How we prepare

We want what you want:  Safe, quick, and low-cost burns.  Here's what we do to make that happen:

  • We construct firebreaks that are equivalent in width to at least twice the height of the fuels surrounding them.  The wider, the better!  We don't skimp on fire line construction to reduce the chance that your fire escapes our set boundaries.

  • We prepare the burn unit with the following actions:  mowing, lea-blowing, raking, removal of sticks and leaves.

  • We remove small flammable structures, trash, and debris from the burn unit. 

  • We identify water sources on site, including spigots, ponds, and streams.

  • We plan with you on areas that need special protection from fire, heat, or smoke.

  • We identify hazards within or near the burn unit, including power poles, fuel tanks, etc.

  • We form a plan with you on neighbor notification.

  • We enable you to manage your land in an environmentally sound way. 

What we provide

On a "turnkey" prescribed fire (one where we are heading up the entire operation), we provide service from approval to completion: 

  • Burn boss, firing boss, personnel for holding

  • Communications equipment

  • UTVs with and/or without water

  • Type 7 engine with water

  • All NWCG-qualified personnel with prior prescribed burning experience

  • Burn plan, smoke permits, and other documentation.

If you are preparing the burn yourself

Safety standards for fire containment and land preparation must be met before burning.  If you want to prepare your land for burning yourself, please contact us for a conversation on what preparation is appropriate in your situation.  RX Fire can only burn on land that has been properly and safely prepared for burning.
