Overview

Bureau of Land Management Utah Fuels Management and Community Fire Assistance Program:

The BLM’s Fuels Management program conducts a wide variety of active management vegetation treatments using mechanical, biological, and chemical tools, and prescribed fire. The program includes creating fuel breaks to provide safe access for firefighters, reducing fuel loads by removing pinon-juniper and invasive species, reducing fire risk near communities, targeted grazing, and herbicide plus seeding to break the fire-cheatgrass cycle.

The BLM's Wildland Fire Community Assistance Program is focused on prevention, education, mitigation and cooperator assistance. The BLM partners with communities to provide funding and technical expertise for hazardous fuels reduction on adjacent non-federal lands, completing Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs), prevention efforts to reduce human-caused fires, and wildland fire training for fire departments and rangeland fire protection associations (RFPAs).
