The park's fire management program provides leadership, direction, coordination, and support for park fire, aviation, and incident management.
The wildland fire management policies of the National Park Service support Channel Islands National Park's resource management goals. The primary goals are to provide for firefighter and public safety, protect natural and cultural resources, and protect human developments from all wildland fire.
