The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) released this great little vid about the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Wildland Fire Community Assistance Program. With a focus 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).
The BLM manages over 245 million acres of land in the West, mostly rangeland and mostly intermingled between state, federal and private lands. These partnerships are critical for the BLM.
