The Northern California Prescribed Fire Council was formed in 2008. Since then they have established a steering committee, by-laws, and working groups focused on promoting the responsible use of prescribed fire in Northern California. The Council hosts semi-annual events bringing fire researchers, prescribed fire users, and community members together. Currently, the Council is developing communications tools for prescribed fire users in Northern California and working on cooperative burning agreements that would increase the ability of Northern California prescribed fire professionals to carry out burns given local constraints. They are hosting a training event in October titled Burning Together, Learning Together.
