Hazardous Fuels Management

The Nevada Fire Management Program's goal is to assist in the effort of ensuring public and firefighter safety, reduce risks to communities and to  improve and maintain ecosystem health based on the 10-Year Comprehensive Strategy. Cooperation between our federal, non-federal partners, local communities and individuals has further advanced our fire management successes.

Treatments are planned and implemented within the wildland urban interface communities as well as outside communities in the surrounding ecosystem. There are four types of hazardous fuels reduction treatments which support fuels and fire management purposes including mechanical, prescribed fire, wildland fire use, and other treatments used in Nevada.
