Safety

There are inherent risks associated with prescribed fire. Persons who are following the best safety practices can and sometimes do get hurt while conducting prescribed burns. Risk can be greatly reduced through the exercise of personal responsibility and common sense. No list of safety rules can adequately cover every situation. Every person who attends a meeting, demonstration or event sponsored by the North Florida Prescribed Burn Association (NFPBA) or its members does so at their own risk and assumes all responsibility for their own safety needs.The North Florida Prescribed Burn Association (NFPBA), its officers, members, demonstrators, volunteers and guests disclaim any responsibility for any damages, injuries, or destruction of property resulting from the use of any information or methods published or distributed by the North Florida Prescribed Burn Association (NFPBA) in its newsletter, it's website, it's Facebook Pages, YouTube Channel, and other social media or demonstrated at workshops, meetings, conferences and other events. The North Florida Prescribed Burn Association (NFPBA) recommends proper attire, safety gear and standard safety procedures appropriate for prescribed burning during any event where prescribed burning and other related methods are involved. Safety attire includes, but is not limited to, appropriate clothing, eye wear, hearing protection, gloves, and face shields when necessary. It is every individual's responsibility to provide for their own safety, to determine what safety gear is appropriate for each situation and to provide, maintain and use that gear as appropriate for each individual situation.
