Description

From the Introduction ... 'The Teton Wilderness Management Plan approved by Regional Forester, Vern Hamre, in October, 1973, contains management direction to develop a Fire Management Plan for the wilderness. The plan, which will allow fire to play a more natural role, is based on the following management decisions....The Wilderness Management Plan indicates that pre-attack planning will be the basis for stratification of the wilderness into modified suppression zones. However, after evaluating the situation in the Teton Wilderness we elected to use a different stratification system. This system is discussed in detail in the procedures section of the plan.'
