Safety is at the heart of everything we do.

The safety of firefighters and the public is the No. 1 priority of all National Park Service wildland fire management activities. Structures can be rebuilt and natural resources generally come back in time. A life cannot be replaced. Firefighter and public safety always takes precedence over property and resource loss.
