The Charlie Team (“the Charlies”) are able to assist across the landscape in reducing the risk of a wildfire. From clearing large tracts of land with excessive fuel, to constructing defensible space around homes, business, heritage sites, etc. These activities include prescribe burns (ecological and fuel reduction), drafting of burn plans, if necessary, permit application. Our specially trained Burn Bosses, Cultural Burners, and Wildfire Scientists know how to do this necessary activity with high levels of professionalism and effectiveness.
We train, capacitate and mentor land managers and landowners so that they can take on these sometimes risky activities in their own countries.
The Charlies are specialists at constructing fire/fuel breaks in many vegetation types. They are trained to use chainsaws and brushcutters so the clearing of invasive alien plant species is all in a day’s work for them. Where the use of herbicide is permitted, we have crew members that are certified to use these products in a safe and appropriate way.
