Fire Management

Fire Island National Seashore completed a Wildland Fire Management Plan in early 2005.

An environmental assessment (EA) was prepared to better understand the environmental effects associated with activities which were incorporated in the park’s Fire Management Plan, including wildland fire suppression, prescribed fire, and manual/mechanical thinning hazardous fuels reductions.

The Finding of No Significant Impact and the final draft of the Wildland Fire Management Plan, February 2005 are available on-line.
