Helping individuals and communities to adapt to, prepare for and respond to wildfire is an important part of BLM’s work. The BLM fosters and supports this by:
- Developing educational materials about wildland fire ecology and prevention.
- Presenting educational programs at local businesses, events, parks and schools.
- Helping communities develop and update wildfire protection plans.
- Help landowners create fire-resilient landscapes.
These efforts support the goals of the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy, which emphasizes an “all-hands, all-lands” approach to managing wildland fire through community engagement and partnerships. Learn more at forestsandrangelands.gov.
