Yolo Prescribed Burn Association

The Yolo Prescribed Burn Association (PBA) is a community- driven network centered around education and training to help land managers put “good fire” back in the ecosystem. Prescribed burning is a cost effective and useful management tool that can reduce fuels on the land, mitigate extreme fire behavior, maintain and regenerate desired vegetation, improve forage quality and quantity, and promote a healthy ecosystem. Unlike high intensity wildfires, prescribed burning is the controlled application of fire under pre-planned management objectives and precise environmental conditions.

"Prescribed burn associations ... serve to build a community of engaged land managers with the goal of ecosystem improvement and land management resilience."

Prescribed burn associations not only provide training and resources to landowners, but they serve to build a community of engaged land managers with the goal of ecosystem improvement and land management resilience. Yolo PBA members will pay a nominal association fee to have access to the PBA’s gear trailer that includes water trailers, pumps and hoses, fire line, hand tools, chainsaws, fire personal protective equipment, and other equipment necessary to successfully implement a safe prescribed burn.
