2012 Prescribed Burns List
Prescribed burns planned for this year will only occur if forecasted weather conditions are favorable and adequate resources are available. Portions of some of these burns may have already been completed or are multi-year projects.
ABOUT Prescribed Burns -
Prescribed burns are management–ignited fires that are used to decrease the risks from wildfire to life, property and resources, to improve ecological process on both public and private lands and to meet agency-specific resource management goals. Prescribed fire projects are conducted in a manner consistent with land and resource management plans, public health considerations (smoke issues) and approved prescribed fire plans.
Color Country Interagency Fire Management is an organization of fire management officials in southwestern Utah and northwestern Arizona (the Arizona Strip) who promote safe and effective fire management through interagency cooperation. Since many wildfires and prescribed fires are of a multi-jurisdictional nature, interagency cooperation provides an ideal background for cohesive ecological, social, political and economical considerations for land management.
