Prescribed Fire Councilsc prescribed fire council logo

Formed in 2003, the South Carolina Prescribed Fire Council (PFC) is comprised of individuals representing public agencies, non-governmental organizations, and private landowners who use prescribed fire to manage their lands. Members of the Council see the need to promote prescribed burning by informing our citizens about the important role fire plays in the stewardship of our natural resources, and by fostering professionalism among practitioners of prescribed burning. The PFC coordinates with various organizations, but functions autonomously.
