The BLM, a leader in our nation’s wildland fire management efforts, undertakes a broad range of activities to safely protect the public, the natural landscape, wildlife habitat and recreational areas for our country’s citizens.
The program includes fire suppression, preparedness, fuels management, prevention and education, community assistance and protection, and perhaps most significant, safety.
The BLM meets these challenges by fielding highly trained and skilled professional firefighters and managers.
Approximately 95% of all wildfires in California are caused by human activity
