As members of the Wisconsin Prescribed Fire Council (WPFC) we strive to make the use of prescribed fire in Wisconsin safer and more accepted for all practitioners. We agree to conduct prescribed fire related activities in a professional manner and strive to follow the standards established by the Council.
Members will strive to enhance the public perception of prescribed fire. When appropriate, we will work cooperatively with government agencies, for-profit businesses, private individuals, and non-profit conservation organizations to accomplish our goals of using, promoting, and enhancing prescribed fire as a land management tool in Wisconsin.
Members agree that the Council endorses two alternative sets of prescribed fire crew training requirements: self-regulation according to Council standards or compliance with National Wildfire Coordinating Group requirements.
Membership is open to any interested individuals, organizations, businesses or agencies.
