From the text: 'After working in both air quality management and fuel management for the past two years, I am convinced that the two programs are compatible. We, as fire managers, should look upon air quality objectives and standards in the same light that we work with water quality, visual and soil protection requirejments. Maintainng air quality is as much a part of the prescribed burning job as achieving resource objectives. If we are knowledgeable enough, care enough and professional enough, we can accomplish an aggressive prescribed fire program while meeting National, State and local air pollution control requirements.'
