ABSTRACT

National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy: Phase II National Report   [open pdf - 7MB]

"'The 'National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy' (Cohesive Strategy) is a collaborative effort to identify, define, and address wildland fire management problems and opportunities for successful wildland fire management in the three regions of the United States: the Northeast, the Southeast, and the West. The Cohesive Strategy is being built both from the top down and from the bottom up. At the national level, the Wildland Fire Leadership Council (WFLC)--an intergovernmental council of Federal, state, tribal, county, and municipal government officials--is the executive leadership body that charts the path and direction for the Cohesive Strategy effort and ensures that the work and activities align with the spirit of the Federal Land Assistance and Enhancement Act (FLAME Act) and other key collaborative wildland fire management documents. [...] Phase I of the Cohesive Strategy outlined a three-phase process to address the three primary factors presenting the greatest challenges and opportunities to make a positive difference to wildland fire management across America: restoring and maintaining resilient landscapes, creating fire-adapted communities, and improving wildfire response. [...] In Phase II, Regional Strategy Committees (RSCs) were brought together using a holistic approach to create a unified regional strategy, not just for wildland fire suppression, but to explore issues of natural resource management and the social and economic implications of landscape and wildland fire management."
