1995 Federal Fire Policy
  • Firefighter and public safety is the top
    priority.
  • The Guiding Principles

7
Guiding Principles
  • Firefighter and public safety is the first
    priority in every fire management activity.
  • The role of wildland fire is an essential
    ecological process and natural change agent will
    be incorporated into the planning process.

8
Guiding Principles
  • Fire management plans, programs, and activities
    support land and resource management plans and
    their implementation.
  • Fire Management Plans guide the suppression
    management strategy.
  • Sound risk management is the foundation for all
    fire management activities.

9
Guiding Principles
  • Fire management programs are economically viable,
    based upon values to be protected, costs, and
    land and resource management objectives.
  • Fire management plans and activities are based on
    the best available science.
  • Fire management plans and activities incorporate
    public health and environmental quality
    considerations.

10
Guiding Principles
  • Federal, State, Tribal, and local interagency
    coordination and cooperation are essential.
  • Standardization of policies and procedures among
    Federal agencies is an ongoing effort.

11
Wildland Fires
  • Wildland fires are unplanned events
  • Wildland fires managed for protection objectives
  • Wildland fires managed for resource objectives
  • Prescribed fire

PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS
  • The 1995 Federal Fire Policy is still generally
    sound and appropriate.

18
PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS
  • As a result of fire exclusion, the condition of
    fire-adapted ecosystems continues to deteriorate
    the fire hazard situation in these areas is worse
    than previously understood.

19
PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS
  • The fire hazard situation in the Wildland Urban
    Interface is more complex and extensive than
    understood in 1995

20
PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS
  • Changes and additions to the 1995 Federal Fire
    Policy are needed to address important issues of
    ecosystem sustainability, science, education,
    communication, and to provide for adequate
    program evaluation.

21
PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS
  • Implementation of the 1995 Federal Fire Policy
    has been incomplete, particularly in the quality
    of planning and in interagency and
    interdisciplinary matters

22
PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS
  • Emphasis on program management, implementation,
    oversight, leadership, and evaluation at senior
    levels of all Federal agencies is critical for
    successful implementation of the 2001 Federal
    Wildland Fire Management Policy.

23
  • This review led to several significant changes
    to the Fire World as we knew it!

24
NATIONAL FIRE PLAN
  • WGA 10-Year Comprehensive Strategy
  • IMPLEMENTATION PLAN
