Description

Most ecosystems in North America evolved with the aid of periodic fires. Managers of natural areas, including prairies and wetlands, who seek to maintain ecologically diverse sites will at some point explore the use of fire in their management program. This article introduces the various components of a fire management program, including the most important issue: safety.
