Electrical ignition provides flexibility in prescribed burning. It is an effective means of ignition on burns where area ignition is required. The technique makes burning on steep, difficult slopes safer by allowing time for careful survey and layout of each ignition point. The types of equipment and circuitry layouts used in electrical ignition are explained and illustrated. A checklist for planning and an example of a firing pattern are included.
