The Nature Conservancy of South Carolina along with Consortium of Appalachian Fire Managers and Scientists (CAFMS) will be hosting a Prescribed Fire Training Exchange (TREX) from October 29 through November 9, 2018.
The TREX will be based out of Pickens County, SC in the Southern Blue Ridge Escarpment Landscape and operate on mostly public lands in South Carolina and North Carolina.
The Southern Blue Ridge TREX will be managed as an incident- participants will be on a burn team and will assist with preparing, scouting, briefing, igniting, holding, mop-up, and patrol on numerous controlled burns in the area. We will also complete pre- and post-fire monitoring, train with equipment, practice fireline leadership skills and learn about local fire ecology and fire management. There will be field trips to past burns, areas burned in recent wildfires and presentations from local community members, scientists, land managers and practitioners.
