A NATIONAL COHESIVE WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY PHASE II NATIONAL REPORT

By:

The  National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy  (Cohesive Strategy) is a collaborative effort to  identify, define, and address wildland fire management problems and opportunities for successful wildland  fire management in the three regions of the United  States: the Northeast, the Southeast, and the West. The  Cohesive Strategy is being built both from the top down and from the bottom up. At the national level, the  Wildland Fire Leadership Council (WFLC) — an  intergovernmental council of Federal, state, tribal, county,  and municipal government officials—is the executive l eadership body that charts  the path and direction for  the Cohesive Strategy effort and ensures that the work  and activities align with the spirit of the Federal  Land Assistance and Enhancement Act (FLAME Act) and  other key collaborative wildland fire management  documents. The WFLC’s fundamental role is to provide st rategic oversight to the regions through efficiency  improvements, to fully utilize existing authorities to  accomplish the three national goals, and to provide the  necessary resources and investments to implement  identified current successful regional actions.
