Forest Service 2014 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. This protocol is broken down into three phases; Pre-Season (Engaging the fire before it starts); During Incident (Managing incident uncertainty and inherent risk) and After Incident (Learning and improving).
