The Big Rivers Forest Fire Management Compact was formed as a cooperative venture between the USDA Forest Service, State and Private Forestry, and the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Missouri. Our mission is to promote and maintain effective fire management service through prevention, pre-suppression, and suppression of natural cover fires; and through the use of prescribed fire.

BRFFMC also promotes and performs common services, such as Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) training, fire prevention, fire cache, fire management concerns, equipment in addition to developing and maintaining an integrated all-risk response plan through use of mutual aid to assist member agencies during periods of extreme emergencies.

We also offer a scholarship to attend a National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) 300 or higher level course. Click here to apply.
