The Upper Colorado River Interagency Fire Management Unit (UCR) provides a full range of fire management services to participating federal, state and local jurisdictions in western Colorado. The UCR is comprised of the Colorado River Valley and Grand junction Field Offices of the Bureau of Land Management, and the White River National Forest. The UCR cooperates with the Colorado National Monument, the GMUG National Forest, state agencies, local communities, and fire departments on a wide range of activities including fuels treatments, fire prevention, and suppression.

Encompassing over 6.7 million acres of land managed by participating Federal agencies and private lands, the UCR is oriented along the Interstate 70 corridor from the Continental Divide on the east to the Utah state line on the west. Vegetation types in the area range from those typifying high desert species such as native bunchgrasses, sagebrush and various types of brush, to woodland species such as pinyon-juniper, aspen and mixed conifer species at higher elevations.
