Quadrennial Fire Review

The purpose of the Quadrennial Fire Review (QFR) is to forecast conditions that may present the greatest challenges for wildland fire management over the next 10 to 20 years, and then develop long-term, strategic actions to address them. The 2014 QFR will focus on completing three main objectives:

  1. Conduct a thorough review and documentation of actions and outcomes that have occurred as a result of the previous QFRs;
  2. Identify the most significant long-term wildland fire management challenges by assessing emerging issues and future threats facing the nation; and
  3. Project future scenarios to highlight areas of consideration for realignment of programs, strategies, capabilities, and the workforce that will assist in addressing the identified challenges and threats.
