Prescribed Fire Training School at Concho, Okla. Not Impacted by Government Shutdown- Still Scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 5 The federal government may still be shut down this weekend, but that won’t stop the wildfire fuel suppression training school scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 5, according to Clay Pope, coordinator with the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub.

“Regardless of the status of the federal government shutdown, our burn meeting at Concho is still a go,” Pope said. “While our partners with the various USDA agencies may not be able to join us, we still plan on kicking off our meeting at 8:30 a.m. this Saturday at the Cheyenne and Arapaho Community Center in Concho.”

Pope said that while several USDA agencies may be affected by the shutdown, the partnership between the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, Redlands Community College, Oklahoma State University, the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub, the Noble Research Institute, The Nature Conservancy of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Prescribed Fire Council, The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service will still be able to host this event.

“The organizations hosting this event include not only state and federal government agencies, but also private sector folks and partners from higher education,” Pope said. “We are looking forward to making this event happen this weekend.”

The training school will start at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 5 at the Cheyenne and Arapaho Community Center located at 300 Black Kettle Dr. in Concho (7 miles north of El Reno on Highway 81) and will be free to the public with a meal provided by Oklahoma AgCredit. For more information or to RSVP for the meeting, contact Clay Pope at 405-699-2087 or claygpope@gmail.com.
