Four Prescribed Burning Workshops are scheduled for the remainder of the winter in Kansas, with the possibility of more upon request. 

The agencies involved include K-State Research and Extension, USDA-NRCS, USDA-FSA, Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism, and the National Weather Service. Each workshop lasts about 4 hours. Topics include, reasons for burning, regulations, weather considerations, liability, burn contractors, equipment and crew, hazards, fuels, firebreaks, fire types and behavior, ignition techniques, and burn plans. Attendees have the opportunity to talk through specific burn scenarios with the presenters.
