Fire Mitigation and Education Program


Each summer and fall, Southern California faces the threat of wildland fire within a developing and expanding urban interface.  The threat of a potentially large or destructive fire is always present.  The goal of the Bureau and Land Management is to prevent the loss of life, resources, and property while maintaining a healthy ecosystem in which fire plays a vital role.  Fire Prevention, Mitigation, and Education programs and specialists provide public outreach and education about the wildland-urban interface and the risk fire poses to communities.  Fire Mitigation and Education specialists work cooperatively with local Fire Departments and Firesafe Councils to develop a unified message for fire prevention emphasizing landowner responsibility for maintaining firesafe structures and grounds.
