Southeast Region Prescribed Fire Training Needs Survey

The intent of this survey is to analyze the training needs related to prescribed fire across the diverse group of practitioners in the Southeast to identify needs and to develop recommendations to potentially increase the availability and selection of course offerings to build capability and capacity of prescribed burners. This survey also implements tasks from the SE Regional Action Plan for Cohesive Strategy, and goals of the SERPPAS Comprehensive Strategy for Prescribed Fire to Restore Longleaf Pine in the SE United States.  This survey is a collaborative effort by the SE Regional Strategy Committee for Cohesive Strategy, SERPPAS Prescribed Fire Work Group, Southern Group of State Foresters, NC State University Extension Forestry, Consortium of Appalachian Fire Managers and Scientist, Forest Stewards Guild, Southern Fire Exchange, and the SE Regional Prescribed Fire Council Coordinating Group.

Please complete the survey by January 26, 2021.
