    Tulsa District Natural Resource Specialists and maintenance crew survey a burned area following a prescribed burn. The Fort Gibson Project office hosted a training class February 2-March 4, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for conducting prescribed fire on government lands. Seventeen USACE park rangers and maintenance staff from seven USACE Civil works Projects attended the training. As part of the training the class conducted eight prescribed burns over three days, burning over 1,530 acres of USACE and Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation managed lands. The five-day training session included instruction in safety, fire, laws, smoke management, field preparation, planning, fire effects, fire behavior, ignition devices, ignition techniques, execution of fire plans, fire weather, fire and wildland/interface, fire ecology and effects on wildlife, as well as a final written test.
