Chicago Wilderness will offer the Midwest Ecological Prescription Burn Crew Member Training class. It is based on the National Wildfire Coordinating Group's (NWCG) S-130 and S-190 courses.
This training covers the basics of such topics as fire behavior, controlled burn techniques, and smoke management. The objective is to provide participants with the background necessary to safely participate on the crew of a controlled burn.
The training will be held at Morton Arboretum on:
Session A: Saturday and Sunday, September 21 and 22, 2019, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Section B: Thursday and Friday, October 3 and 4, 2019, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The cost is $75. Register HERE.
Please be aware that although the training is accepted by many of the natural resource management agencies in the CW region as the minimum training required for a participant on a burn crew, it does not carry the official NWCG certification.
If you already have your CW certificate, you can upload it, to your FPCC Volunteer profile.
