Go / No Go Checklist: Before a burn begins, the agency administrator – typically the park superintendent – and the burn boss – who directs prescribed fire operations – go through a risk management checklist which asks a series of questions. These include: Are weather conditions within prescription? Are all necessary equipment and supplies onsite? Are appropriate holding resources available? Has the burn unit been fully prepared? Are all personnel properly certified? Has there been public notification? Is a smoke management plan being implemented? If the answer to any of these is "no", the burn will not proceed.
