Part one of a four-part story on Working Together for Effective Wildland Fire Management
Written in Cooperation with Luis Castillo, Assistant Center Manager, Silver City Interagency Dispatch Center
Silver City, NM, April 29, 2019— Part of the mission of the USDA Forest Service is to continue to manage for healthy forests on federal lands. Wildland fire management is important to this mission. Our partners, New Mexico State Forestry and Bureau of Land Management have similar missions and goals. While fire has helped shape our landscape, wildland fires today are often hotter, more destructive, and more dangerous to fight during drought or exceptionally hot summers. There is no one-size-fits-all solution and we aim “To safely and effectively extinguish fire when needed; use fire where allowable; manage our natural resources; and as a Nation, live with wildland fire.” -- The National Cohesive Wildland Management Strategy (2014)
