Sedona AZ (March 26, 2017) – The Verde Valley All Hazards Training Association is sponsoring a Wildland Fire Skills Training Day on March 29 at the Crescent Moon day-use area just southwest of downtown Sedona that may produce smoke in and around Sedona.
Six agencies will be participating in the training, which will include a three-acre prescribed burn that will take place between 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will function as a training exercise for approximately 100 firefighters. For training purposes, the burn will be divided into five parcel locations and is expected to last three to five minutes in each lighting. The burn area, located just east of the Crescent Moon Native Seed Nursery, will reduce invasive Johnson grass and the dead and down trees. Read More→
