Fire is essential for maintaining the biodiversity throughout many of Florida’s habitats. Prescribed fires mimic natural fire conditions to help prevent catastrophic wildfires.
  • This versatile and cost effective land management tool confines fire to a particular landscape.
  • Specific conditions and precautionary measures accomplish planned objectives.
  • Reducing hazardous fire conditions and providing increased protection to people, property and the environment.
Sarasota County is one of more than 30 different entities that the Florida Division of Forestry authorizes to conduct burns within Sarasota County.
