Ways we can help

The main mission of PUC is to assist private landowners with utilizing prescribed fire as a land management goal. In addition, PUC aims to provide educational and supplementary resources for the community that are related to prescribed fire:

Plumas Cal-TREX

Training the next generation of fire practitioners with hands-on training and cooperative burns with different agencies. This is annual event that occurs in the spring of each year.

Air Purifier Loans

No-cost, short-term HEPA air purifiers for residents of Plumas County affected by smoke.

PUC Site Visits

Community members can request a PUC coordinator to come visit the property where they reside. Coordinators can help landowners/managers come up with a management plan for their property. Fire is a beneficial tool that can be used on many landscapes in Plumas County to create defensible space, remove fuels, cycle nutrients, remove invasive species, and more. Need some direction?
