2017 Report: Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges and Cooperative Burning. Experiential training events in support of landscape restoration and resiliency, fire adapted communities and workforce capacity-building. This report briefly covers events from spring 2017

This spring, TREX teams mobilized for eight events that ran a total of 90 days. All told, 318 people built their skills and fire networks, and accomplished 14,437 acres of prescribed burns in six states—California, Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska, New Mexico and Oregon. As usual, the burn teams worked around rainstorms and snow, dry spells and red flag days, finding the windows to get good fire done. They also talked about good fire—among themselves, with community members, and to reporters—laying the groundwork for acceptance of even more fire on the landscape to come.
