Wildland Prescribed Fires

ADEQ's Air Quality Division implements a Smoke Management Plan that works toward a reduction in smoke impacts due to prescribed/controlled burning of nonagricultural fuels with particular regard to heavy forest fuels. All state lands, parks and forests, as well as any federally managed lands in Arizona, are under the jurisdiction of ADEQ in matters relating to air pollution from prescribed burning.
