[from the text] Recent changes in Forest Service fire management policy make it clear that resource managers today need a great deal more information on the physical, biological, and ecological effects of fire. They will need information on fire behavior and fire effects as a basis for analyzing the benefits, damages, and values of various fire management alternatives. Managers must be able to place a value on all resources if they are going to incorporate fire and its effects into land management plans. The Forest Service is committed to the concept that fire management planning has to be a fundamental part of all our planning.
