Description

For the last 100 years, fire suppression policies have largely kept fire from playing its natural role. Removing fire from ecosystems that depend on it to stay healthy, coupled with more people building houses in flammable natural areas, has created a costly and dangerous wildfire problem. We need to find ways to restore fire to places that need it while protecting homes and communities. We need a new approach to fire management.
