PRESS RELEASE: Prescribed burns scheduled for JBSA-Camp Bullis starting Jan. 10

502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

Joint Base San Antonio’s Natural Resources Office, Fire & Emergency Services, and Air Force Wildland Fire Branch officials plan to conduct prescribed burns at JBSA-Camp Bullis Jan. 10-11 and Jan. 16-19, as weather conditions allow.

Residents near JBSA-Camp Bullis may see or smell smoke while the burn progresses.

The burns are intended to reduce fuel loads, such as dead vegetation and thick brush, which will lessen the risk of future, potentially catastrophic, wildfires.

Joint Base San Antonio Fire Emergency Services personnel are coordinating with the Bureau of Land Management, the Fish and Wildlife Service, as well as fire departments in the surrounding areas to ensure each burn happens safely and remains fully contained throughout the scheduled period. Additionally, crews evaluate weather conditions before starting the burn each day.

JBSA-Camp Bullis comprises more than 27,000 acres of ranges, training areas, and wildlands on San Antonio’s north side and is a crucial training location for service members from Joint Base San Antonio.
