From the text...'Managers of Florida's wildlands are well aware of the contrasting effects of fire. They know this natural phenomenon has awesome destructive potential under adverse fuel and weather conditions, but they also recognize it has the unique ability to produce a wide range of desirable outcomes under less severe conditions...At the same time, there has also been an effort to increase the expertise of the individuals conducting the burns. All of those involved believe that the future of prescribed fire lies in the hands of reponsible burners.'
