From the text ... 'Early prescribed natural fire efforts were tacitly supported, limited in extent, and carried out under close scrutiny.... Wildland fire use has moved beyond the confines of remote, inaccessible areas. It is expanding across an increasing variety of land use situations.... During the last 8 years more programmatic change has been associated with using wildland fire for resource benefits than in the previous three decades.... With any new process, practice, or substantial change, real or perceived management failures can potentially limit wildland fire use implementation.... The initial prescribed natural fire pioneers established a solid foundation for future innovations and use of wildland fire.'
