Illinois Prescribed Burn Manager Certification
The Illinois Prescribed Burn Manager Certification is run by the IL Department of Natural Resources. The Fire Council provides information on this program to be helpful. For inquiries to DNR on this program contact Benjamin Snyder.
Several links are listed below and reading them will answer most questions. One link is the Illinois Prescribed Burning Act — Public Act, which is the law that was passed in 2009. Read that short act, but note that details to the act, the “Administrative Code” were delegated to DNR, so read the link to the Illinois Prescribed Burning Act – Administrative Code.
Here are a few highlighted points on page 11 in the Administrative Code .
