From the text ... 'The 1988 fire season showed us much about the importance of basing decisions on fire regimes and their associated fire behavior characteristics. Although our policies are necessarily broad, we are learnng that implementation of programs must be based on the fire regimes and fire dynamics that represent the area under consideration.'
