Forest Service Wildland Fire Risk Management Protocols In concert with the Federal Fire Policy, sound decision making for wildfire response relies on identifying reasonable objectives for protection of critical values at risk, while considering the amount and quality of firefighter exposure and probability of success.

Risk Management doesn’t get in the way of doing the mission – it is the way we do the mission. The Risk Management Process assists in ensuring that critical factors and risks of the fireline work environment are considered during decision making.

Good risk management utilizes a five-step process: Identify hazards – those likely to result. A wildfire risk assessment framework for land and resource management. Gen. Tech. Rep. RMRS-GTR U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station.

Making these decisions has become more challenging as. wildland fires each year, and 90 per cent of wildland fires that occur within kilometers of 3 Ontario communities are caused by human activities.2 When communities expand into forested areas (known as the wildland-urban interface), the manner in which development occurs affects the level of risk to human life and values that is associated with.

As demonstrated by recent wildland fires, added fuels are fostering more intense wildfires that are more difficult to contain and control.

Consequently, valu-able property and natural resources have been destroyed, costs of fire management have escalated, fire-dependent forest ecosystems have deteriorated, and risks to human lifeCited by: Contents: Preface; Wildland Fire Management: Better Information and a Systematic Process Could Improve Agencies' Approach to Allocating Fuel Reduction Funds and Selecting Projects; Forest Service: Better Planning, Guidance, and Data Are Needed to Improve Management of the Competitive Sourcing Program; Wildland Fire Management: Federal Agencies Lack Key Long Format: Paperback.

The threat of wildland fire burning flammable structures is a national issue. Each year the risk increases from accumulating wildland fuels and building flammable structures adjacent to wildlands.

The present book outlines different perspectives regarding wildland fires, mega fires, wildland-urban interfaces, and its ecosystem impacts.All wildland fires present an inherent level of risk, given that we are dealing with a number of unknowns and uncertainty in what the future will bring.

The relative risk rating is intended to characterize the general magnitude of risks associated with implementing wildland fire management activities as a snapshot in time.
