What is a prescribed fire association or cooperative?

A prescribed fire association is a group of landowners and managers in an area who pool their resources, such as equipment and labor, to assist each other with conducting prescribed fires. This type of group cooperation provides landowners the equipment, labor, and experience to safely burn. There are over 50 prescribed fire associations across the country with most of them located in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas and Nebraska.
