FIRE PREVENTION, WILDFIRE AND COMMUNITIES

The fire prevention program includes providing information to interested individuals, making presentations to a variety of age and civic groups in affected communities, and supporting the efforts of state and local partners to contact landowners interested in reducing the quantity of fuel on their land.

Environmental education efforts discussing the natural role of fire in the ecosystem are supplemented by more traditional approaches to fire prevention using Smokey Bear as a spokesperson.

As a way to increase awareness, contacts are made with dispersed campers and backcountry visitors to reiterate the message that escaped campfires remain the primary source of human-caused wildfires in the local area.
