Supper Club: The Importance of Prescribed Burns

Another prescribed burn happened near Sisters this week, which is the latest in a series of controlled burns that are designed to prevent larger wildfires later in the season.

For this week’s Supper Club, Lisa Carton sat down with three fire experts to talk about why these burns are so important to do right now, at this time of the year. The month of May is also wildfire awareness month in Oregon.

Thanks to Deschutes County Forester, Ed Keith, Project Wildfire Program Coordinator, Alison Green, and Alex Robertson of Central Oregon Fire Management Service, for joining us.

A special thanks to our Supper Club sponsors, Selco Community Credit Union, for giving us the time and resources to talk about the issues that impact our region every Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon on Central Oregon Daily.
