The Rogue Basin Prescribed Fire Training Exchange (RBTREX) is a collaboration between local agencies, non-profits, and community organizations advancing local capacity to put prescribed fire to work in ecological restoration and providing hands-on training opportunities. RBTREX brings together new and seasoned fire practitioners alike who are looking to gain experience and advance their certifications on live understory prescribed fire operations. We also bring added capacity to existing landscape-scale restoration projects in the Rogue Basin, providing additional personnel resources that allow agency and NGO partners to accomplish more acres of treatment.

Learning Together, Burning Together.
Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
A diverse fire practitioner workforce increases knowledge, skills and abilities by sharing scientific ecological knowledge, local knowledge of weather patterns and fire behavior, and cultural knowledge. When landowners, volunteers, biologists, scientists, managers and other individuals are trained and qualified, they may assist with prescribed burns and other fire management activities.
