In this episode, we interview Dave Pascal, a Cultural & Prescribed Fire Specialist with the First Nations Emergency Services Society (FNESS). Dave discusses the importance of cultural and prescribed fire in British Columbia and the work he's doing to revitalize these practices with First Nations.
This is a great episode to learn more about the meaning and difference between cultural and prescribed fire, as well as the many ways FNESS is working to assist Nations with funding, burn site identification, and resource management.
