BLM’s Fire and Aviation program has three organizational levels:

1) The national office provides leadership and oversight and develops policy, procedures and budgets for the fire and aviation program;

2) BLM state offices are responsible for coordinating policies and interagency activities within their state; and

3) Field offices are responsible for on-the-ground fire management and aviation activities, often partnering with other agencies to conduct efficient wildland fire suppression operations.
