Prescribed burns will be conducted throughout training areas at Fort Benning March 28.

The wind direction is expected to keep smoke away from sensitive areas. However, wind direction may change due to shifts in the weather.

Prescribed burns are performed to reduce the impact of wildfires, improve the usability of training lands, provide ecological maintenance, and to enhance wildlife habitat.
