Description

From the text and table of contents: .'This report addresses five major topic areas: 1) role of wildland fire in resource management, 2) use of wildland fire, 3) preparedness and suppression, 4) wildland/urban interface protection, and 5) coordinated program management; presents nine guiding principles that are fundamental to wildland fire management, and recommends a set of thirteen Federal wildland fire policies. While unique agency missions may result in minor operational differences, having, for the first time, one set of 'umbrella' Federal fire policies will enhance effective and efficient operations across administrative boundaries and improve our capability to meet the challenges posed by current wildland fire conditions.'
