2019 Oregon Prescribed Fire Training Exchange (TREX) Online Application
The objective of the two-week TREX programs in Central and Southwest Oregon is to facilitate peer-to-peer, experiential learning for prescribed fire professionals and others interested in advancing their understanding of innovative tools to restore fire-adapted ecosystems. Participants will learn, practice, and share knowledge, skills, and experience in a unique, hands-on training environment focused on the ecological, social, communications, monitoring, and operational dimensions of planning and implementing ecologically-based prescribed fire.

For a full description and details, please read this introduction and full TREX Application Packet before proceeding.

The cost to participate is $300, due upon selection and acceptance to one of the Oregon TREX programs.

The majority of training costs [room and board (for non-local participants), training materials, instruction, cadre, and local resources] are covered thanks to generous support from the Oregon Fire Learning Network, The Nature Conservancy in Oregon, U.S. Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management. If the participant fee poses a significant financial hardship, a limited number of scholarships are available thanks to generous support from the Northwest Fire Science Consortium. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship, please indicate as much when asked in the application forms.

Please note, each participant and their employer is responsible for all paid and/or vacation time, including overtime, accrued during TREX. It is the responsibility of participants to inform supervisors of the training schedule, hours (approx. 10-12 hours/day), and costs to participate in TREX and make any logistical and administrative arrangements regarding pay prior to arrival.

The Fire Learning Network and the University of Idaho (UI) are happy to announce that UI College of Natural Resources is now offering an upper division companion course for TREX. The course is designed for non-degree seeking fire professionals, aspiring fire professionals, fire practitioners, enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, and anyone interested in increasing their knowledge of fire ecology, management, and related ecological sciences.
