The Mission of the Michigan Prescribed Fire Council is to protect, conserve, and expand the safe use of prescribed fire on the Michigan landscape.
The Michigan Prescribed Fire Council was formed to bring together practitioners, guides, and students of prescribed fire to provide a network through which information could be disseminated, partnerships could form and the use of prescribed fire would be protected. This site holds much information, and questions are always welcomed if you can’t find what you need here.
