From the text: 'And, finally, I foresee a balanced fire management program. We do not want to lose our perspective. Aggressive fire control has not lost its importance. Fire readiness is a must. We will continue to have numerous fires in the foreseeable future. We must prevent the fires, if possible if prevention is not possible, then we will stop the fire from spreading to hazardous fuel. And, finally, we will use fire to our benefit, through prescribed burning and other methods. Once we accomplish all of this, then we will truly be the masters, and fire will be our servant. It is toward that end that you will be working during the seminar. I'm sure that it will be a productive session. I look forward to seeing some of the results of this seminar in the near future in on-the-ground resource management.'
