The challenges of fire management are formidable and growing more complex. The Nation has diverse landscapes, demographics, and social values; and because of this, a national strategy must address these differences. This new book addresses the wildland fire management challenges across America with a focus on providing the framework for a strategic effort to restore and maintain resilient landscapes, create fire-adapted communities, and respond to wildfires. Additionally, this book examines the general science available for a risk-based approach to fire and fuels management and suggests analysis that may be applied at multiple scales to inform decision-making and tradeoff analysis.
