A NATIONAL COHESIVE WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY PHASE II NATIONAL REPORT
By: Wildland Fire Leadership Council
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.
