Reducing unwanted human-caused wildfires

Our mission is to reduce the number of unwanted human-caused wildfires in our protection areas and beyond in coordination with other agency partners. Creating public awareness of the activities that commonly cause wildfires and providing resources for preventing them are the key components to successful fire prevention efforts. Educating the public on defensible space is also part of our prevention mission.
