MCLB Albany Prescribed Burning
Natural Resources will begin conducting prescribed burns across the installation beginning in February and running through July. Approximately 1,200 acres will be burned on MCLB Albany over the course of the next six months with the bulk of burning taking place between February and April. During this time expect to see fire activity and smoke, particularly during dry, sunny conditions. Motorists should slow down when driving through controlled burn areas, especially if heavy smoke is present. Natural Resources conducts burning under weather conditions that minimize the impacts to those who work and live aboard the installation, however, residual smoke is unavoidable. Please note that MCLB Albany's neighbors also conduct prescribed burns and generate smoke which may be present aboard the installation. Individuals with breathing conditions such as asthma should avoid exposure to smoke. Prescribed burning is an integral part of managing southern pine forests and maintaining healthy ecosystems. Without periodic controlled burning, forest health and wildlife habitat are negatively impacted and the accumulation of forestry debris could contribute to damaging wildfires.
