Smoke Management Plans
With permission from the Southern Michigan Prescribed Fire Council.
Where there is fire, there is smoke. Smoke management is an important consideration when conducting a prescribed fire. Prescribed fires are conducted when atmospheric and vegetative conditions will minimize the amount of smoke produced and its impacts on people. Great care is taken to minimize this temporary inconvenience.
Always warn your neighbors of your burn, and prevent smoke from hindering any roadways by planning your burn when the wind direction is going away from the road.
