Check here to see all the latest media coverage of SBR TREX. The purpose of this event is to train fire professionals, restore the forest and reduce hazardous wildfire fuels. We also hope to help educate local communities on the presence and necessity of controlled burning for our forests and encourage them to become more fire adapted.

The 2018 SBR TREX was just the beginning! Check back here for updates and news!

The Southern Blue Ridge Prescribed Fire Training Exchange began in 2018. The objective of this two-week TREX program is to facilitate peer-to-peer, experiential learning for prescribed fire professionals and others interested in advancing their understanding of innovative tools to restore fire-adapted ecosystems. Participants learn, practice, and share knowledge, skills, and experience in a unique, hands-on training environment focused on the ecological, social, communications, monitoring, and operational dimensions of planning and implementing ecologically-based prescribed fire. SBR TREX is an equal opportunity provider.
