The National Interagency Prescribed Fire Training Center (NIPFTC) has always been an interagency collaboration. This includes the staff. The USFWS has supported the Director position since the second year of NIPFTC’s existence. The USFS has supported the administrative staff, which has fluctuated in the number of positions over the years. Currently there is an Administrative Specialist. In the past the Operations Specialist position has been filled by The Nature Conservancy and National Park Service personnel; however, it is now filled by a USFS person. The Training Specialist was once provided by The Nature Conservancy and is now filled with a Tall Timbers employee.
