CalFire and ranch plan rangeland burn
The burn, weather permitting, will be in partnership with the Gallatin Ranch and will burn about 800 acres of Tehama County rangeland.
This year, the burn will incorporate a live fire training course that will provide instruction for CalFire staff in the Northern Region.
The rangeland burn is located in the Red Bank area of western Tehama County not generally visible to the public.
CalFire is conducting the burn with cooperating land managers under the Vegetation Management Program (VMP), a state-sponsored cost sharing program to encourage prescribed fires on private property.
Burns will be implemented only if weather conditions meet prescribed parameters for a safe, effective operation.
Last year, CalFire and partners burned about 1,550 acres of rangeland in Tehama County.
