Policy

The Review and Update of the 1995 Federal Wildland Fire Management Policy (January 2001) states that “Agencies will ensure their capability to provide safe, cost-effective fire management programs in support of land and resource management plans through appropriate planning, staffing, training, equipment, and management oversight.”

 

The Assistant Director, Fire and Aviation (OF&A), accomplishes this in part through the fire preparedness review process.

 
What the review does

Fire preparedness reviews assess fire programs for compliance with established fire policies and procedures as outlined in the current Interagency Standards for Fire and Fire Aviation Operations and other pertinent policy documents.  Reviews identify organizational, operational, procedural, personnel, or equipment deficiencies, and recommend specific corrective actions.

 
BLM review schedules
  • BLM Field Offices or Districts conduct fire preparedness reviews annually.
  • BLM State Offices conduct state-wide fire preparedness reviews every two years.
  • The BLM National Office conducts national fire preparedness reviews of each BLM state fire program every four years.
