Prescribed Burns in NJ (NJ Forest Fire Service): March 31 and April 1

New Jersey Forest Fire Service crews continued to conduct prescribed burns on March 31 and April 1. I'm still not quite sure when the prescribed burning season will end this year.

A small map of New Jersey by county with a listing of counties in each of the three New Jersey Forest Fire Service (NJFFS) Divisions may be found here (scroll down a bit). A second map of New Jersey from the New Jersey Forest Fire Service shows the boundaries of the three NJFFS Divisions, with the location of each Division Section may be found here.
