A Model for Success in the SW

THIS. IS. IT....Protecting structures and communities while working WITH fire when and where it occurs to benefit the forest and watershed over the long-term. It's working in SW Arizona where federal, state and Tribal land managers have been developing a model for managing wildfire starts and using prescribed fire over the last decade. Take a few moments and watch this great video from our friends at the Southwest Fire Science Consortium about two fires in Arizona that provided these opportunities for landscape scale restoration success as well as the protection of communities and the safety and effectiveness of firefighters!  A Cohesive Strategy TRIFECTA!
