Interagency Fire Crews conduct a prescribed burn on the RMA to reduce weeds, and hazardous fuels. Prescribed Fires are Good Fires.

As one of the most important natural agents of change, fire plays a vital role in maintaining certain ecosystems. Prescribed fire reintroduces the beneficial effects of fire into an ecosystem, producing the kinds of vegetation and landscapes we want, and reducing the hazard of catastrophic wildfire caused by excessive fuel buildup.
