Loess Hills Cooperative Burn Week
March 19-23, 2018

This event, sponsored by the Loess Hills Fire Partners, provided an opportunity for partners join together to achieve fire management in an area where extra hands or resources were needed to accomplish the work at scale. It was also an opportunity to build relationships, share knowledge and skills, and work within a more complex organizational structure than usual through utilization of the Incident Command System. An NWCG S-211 Portable Pumps and Water Usage course (which incorporated both classroom and hands-on time focusing on water delivery and appliances) was also integrated into the week. 

This summary gives an overview of the week, and appendixes have lists of partner agencies and burn units completed, as well as photos from the event.
