The Michigan Prescribed Fire Council protects, conserves, and expands the safe use of prescribed fire in Michigan and across the country.


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 a wealth of information, and questions are always welcome if you can’t find what you need here.
