Get State Certified for Pile Burning

State Certified Pile Burn Course
Escambia County Extension and the Florida Forest Service will be conducting a State  Certified Pile Burners Course on Wednesday, August 15. This training will be held from 8:30 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. at the Langley Bell 4-H Center, 4810 West Nine Mile Road.  The Deadline is August 7, 2012 unless the class fills up sooner.

This course will show you how to burn piles legally, safely and efficiently. When the weather is dry, certified pile burners will receive priority for authorization to burn. Also, certified pile burners are allowed to burn up to two hours longer per day and get multiple day authorizations.

Registration is required to attend and the class size is limited. The cost is $50 per person. There will be a test at the end of the course. You must receive a grade of 70 percent or higher on the exam and demonstrate a proper pile burn with your local FFS office to become certified. Once you are certified it will be noted with your customer number.

For more information, or to register, please contact Libbie Johnson, Escambia County Agriculture Extension Agent, at 475-5230, or
