[From the text] The topics to be discussed today are certainly timely and deserve your attention. I feel it is significant that your working group is trying to involve landowners, managers and planners. Fire was a front page news story this summer. The severe fire situation demonstrated quite vividly the negative impact of fire. This fire season again pointed out that man is still unable to master wildfire under severe conditions. It also points out that we must consider fire in our management activities. Some of these fires were influenced by man's past and present management activities - and many of them will drastically change man's future management actions.
