Planned Rx (Prescribed) Fires (Tab 2)

Planned Rx

The Planned Rx screen reports prescribed fire projects that are planned within the next few days. It provides managers an idea of the number of projects being conducted in the short term, along with general remarks and descriptions for planned and contingent resource commitments.

respective GACC with questions.
