Smoke will be heaviest during the burn and will taper off each day after that. Fire managers will take measures to minimize smoke impacts as much as possible.
“We appreciate that many community members came to our prescribed fire public meetings, received information, asked questions, and provided feedback about our prescribed burning,” stated Martie Schramm, Williams District Ranger. “We strive to keep the public informed of our prescribed burning and appreciate the publics’ understanding of our objectives to improve forest health and reduce hazardous fuels, thereby protecting our communities from destructive wildfire.”
The ignition of all of our burns is dependent on the availability of personnel and equipment, favorable weather conditions, and Arizona Department of Environmental Quality approval. Burns are conducted within a “prescription” that is determined by appropriate fuel moisture, temperature, humidity, wind, and ventilation. Fire crews implement, monitor, and patrol each project to ensure it meets the goals and objectives outlined in our prescribed burn plans.
