The Trans-Pecos Prescribed Burn Association was officially created on February 25th, 2009 when landowners and managers from across the Trans-Pecos region gathered at Sul Ross State University.
Fire is a big concern for area ranchers, county officials, and the general public. In recent years the large scale wildfires in the region have emphasized the need for proper fire and fuel management both on public and private properties.
The burn association was created to address this need on private ranches throughout the Trans-Pecos. The major goals of a burn association are to: 1) provide for training in fire behavior and prescribed fire application to its members, 2) provide a community of landowners and individuals that can safely apply prescribed fire to rangelands, 3) provide a mechanism for certification as a certified prescribed burn manager and a decrease in liability for landowners, and 4) provide a mechanism to effectively communicate with county and other local officials to safely manage fire in a county.
