About the Edition

This Wildland Fire Primer is intended to serve as an outline for educators interested in teaching students about wildland fire. Fire and its management can be intimidating subjects for those with little or no knowledge of wildland fire issues. The background information provided in this Primer and related curriculum materials will enable educators to feel comfortable discussing wildland fire topics, and assist them in bringing these important topics into the classroom. It is not practical to include everything educators might need or want to know about wildland fire education in this Primer. Educators should contact local offices of Federal and State fire or resource agencies and local fire departments to get specific information about wildland fire education, policies, and effects in their area. This Primer has five areas of emphasis- (1) the natural role of fire- (2) the historical and cultural aspects of fire- (3) the wildland urban interface zone- (4) fire management-fuels treatment and prescribed fire- and (5) fire management - fire education, prevention, and suppression. Many fire topics blend into more than one area. Included is a list of wildland fire education resource materials and fire-related Web sites. Some materials may be available through local offices of Federal or State agencies, while others are available through various additional outlets.--Page 1.
