Fire Management is a program to manage wildland fires, prescribed fires and fuels. Fire Management Plans must address a full range of fire management activities that support ecosystem sustainability, values to be protected, protection of firefighter and public safety, public health and environmental issues, and must be consistent with resource management objectives and activities identified by tribal landowners.
