About Our Council
Prescribed fires are used by a variety of individuals, agencies, and organizations throughout the state. In 2003, a group of stakeholders came together to establish the Southwest Georgia Prescribed Fire Council in a regional effort to encourage the exchange of information, techniques, and experience among practitioners. These efforts quickly garnered interest by other regions in the state, and in 2007, the organization became a statewide effort – the Georgia Prescribed Fire Council. Today the Council is made up of a diverse group of private, state, and federal partners working together to advocate and educate for the increased use of prescribed fire throughout Georgia.
