The Living with Texas Fire videos showcase aspects of prescribed burning and wildfire mitigation targeted toward empowering and encouraging Texas landowners to become fire-ready. The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service developed educational materials that empower landowners with safe prescribed burn practices. The materials also help to strengthen the Prescribed Burn Associations and Burn Schools knowledge-base of prescribed burning in Texas.

Aerial footage highlights differences in fire behavior and illustrates a head fire, back fire, and flank fire.

This technique ensures adequate consumption of fuels and is a reliable ignition method to use when targeting brush. This video demonstrates the slow and steady build of blacklines to ensure the prescribed burn stays safe and successful while working with certain environmental conditions.
