Alaska land managers and wildfire protection organizations have begun interagency fire planning for over 220 million fire-prone acres (=81 million ha). A 14-step process has been developed to guide planning teams. Four plans have been completed and nine are presently being developed. They will cover all major fire-prone areas of the State by 1984. Thus far, land managers have collectively placed approximately one-fourth of their land under full protection, one-fourth under modified protection, and one-fourth under limited protection. The remainder is non-burnable. Results from an active 1983 fire season indicate lands are placed in appropriate protection categories.
