A Collaborative Approach for Reducing Wildland Fire Risks to Communities and the Environment

A Collaborative Approach for Reducing Wildland Fire Risks to Communities and the Environment

In August 2001 the Secretaries of Agriculture and the Interior joined the Western Governors' Association, National Association of State Foresters, National Association of Counties, and the Intertribal Timber Council to endorse this 10-Year Comprehensive Strategy to deal with the wildland fire and hazardous fuels situation, as well as the needs for habitat restoration and rehabilitation in the Nation. Its goals were to improve fire prevention and suppression, reduce hazardous fuels, restore fire-adapted ecosystems, and promote community assistance. This update was released in December, 2006.
