The Prescribed Burning Board sets standards for prescribed burning and develops comprehensive training curriculum for the certification of prescribed burn managers. The PBB sets standards for the certification, renewal, and training of certified and insured prescribed burn managers and instructors.
The PBB considers multiple factors when establishing the professional and educational requirements necessary for a certified and insured prescribed burn manager to be eligible for renewal of certification, or for individuals to become certified.
Additionally, the PBB ensures that the minimum insurance requirements set forth in the Natural Resources Code are met for the protection of the CIPBM and those participating in or in the vicinity of a prescribed burn.
The PBB conducts regular meetings, as necessary and works closely with the Texas Department of Agriculture for administration.
