From the text ... 'Fire prevention starts with education and planning. It means developing a broader understanding of wilderness and national park areas -- why they exist, how they're different, their scientific values, the way their management philosophies differ from those of other national forest lands or private lands. It means underscoring the impacts and risks that are created by developments within wildland areas or alongside wildernesses areas and national parks, much like we have begun to address the impacts and risks associated with developments on floodplains, fault zones and volcanic slopes.'
