Prescribed Fire

Prescribed fires are those based on a prescription- a carefully written plan that incorporates many factors such as weather conditions, topography, fuel type and desired goals into a very specific strategy using fire. Where possible, prescribed fire is used as a cost effective alternative to mechanical or hand-clearing of vegetation, methods that are labor intensive and time consuming ways to meet management goals. City staff works closely with local fire departments and our natural resource partners to ensure that adequate planning and resources are in place to conduct prescribed fires safely.
