The MPFC has developed a brief overview brochure which contains some introductory information regarding the purpose, planning, and execution of prescribed fires.

Thank you to the Michigan State Firemen’s Association for partially funding the printing of the brochure.

We also have a DVD of “Fire: A Prescription for Restoration“. This video was professionally filmed in Newaygo County of a controlled burn conducted on a private landowner’s property. It is available for the cost of postage.
