Federal funding for wildfire management (WFM) is provided in the annual Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies appropriations bill. It funds wildfire management at the Forest Service and the Department of the Interior, which are the two principal entities tasked with federal wildfire management. Federal wildfire response activities involve preparedness, suppression, fuel reduction, site rehabilitation, and more. This book discusses the federal assistance for wildfire and response and recovery, as well as federal funding and related statistics of wildfire management. (Imprint: Nova)
