This pocket guide was created by the Coalition of Prescribed Fire Councils and SERPPAS. The Coalition of Prescribed Fire Councils partners with Councils across the country to "create one voice to assist fire practitioners, policymakers, regulators, and citizens with issues surrounding prescribed fire use." The Coalition is also active in facilitating the development of Councils in those states that do not yet have one.
The guide is a list of rules, checklists, and other resources to serve as a job aid for those needing to recall the rules and guidelines associated with proper prescribed smoke management practices and planned burns.
SERPPAS is a unique six-state partnership comprised of state and federal agencies that promotes collaboration in making resource-use decisions supporting conservation of natural resources, working lands, and national defense.
