National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy: Phase III Southeast Regional Action Plan [open pdf - 2MB]
"The National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy (Cohesive Strategy) is an innovative approach to addressing the significant and growing challenges of wildland fire management. Over the last three years, the Southeast region has been engaged in the development of a holistic fire management strategy incorporating all stakeholders, including local governments, Firewise communities, state forestry agencies and federal government agencies. The Cohesive Strategy is a three-phase, multilateral effort to collaboratively address wildfire challenges across all lands and jurisdictions. Developed in response to the 2009 Federal Land Assistance, Management and Enhancement (FLAME) Act, the Cohesive Strategy represents the first time all stakeholders involved in wildfire and land management have had the opportunity to come together and create a shared national fire strategy. It also marks the first time individual regions of the country have been able to identify regional goals, objectives and challenges for incorporation into a national strategy."
