2019 Spring Cascadia TREX
Prescribed Fire Training Exchange
Cascadia Prescribed Fire Training Exchange (TREX) is back! The two-week TREX program in Central Washington facilitates peer -to-peer experiential learning for fire professionals, natural resource managers, and others interested in advancing their understanding of prescribed fire and fire-adapted landscapes. Participants will learn, practice, and share knowledge, skills and experience in a hands-on training environment.
Participants serve both as trainers and trainees, and in qualified firefighting positions on a burn team. We will train with equipment, practice fireline leadership, learn about local fire ecology, fire management, and landscape restoration projects through field exercises, workshops, presentations, field trips, and yes, prescribed burning. TREX is a two-way training and learning program, in which everyone is simultaneously a participant, teacher, and student.
