Wildfires throughout California are increasing in size, complexity, and frequency. Reclamation is collaborating with the BLM to provide increased fuels (vegetation) reduction support, management, and technical pre-suppression support for fire protection and public safety.
Reclamation and the BLM coordination will also include sharing technical expertise on the development of fire management plans, overseeing field work, and stakeholder outreach. Crews will begin work in the winter months.
Reclamation’s partnership with the BLM is dedicated to fire management on federal project lands adjacent to the wildland urban interface. Coordinating with ongoing efforts by local communities adjacent to the Auburn State Recreation Area increases overall project success.
This collaborative fuels’ reduction program will be managed and administered by Reclamation; project activities will be overseen by the BLM. Wildland fire prevention takes all of us, doing our part to ensure One Less Spark means One Less Wildfire.
