**FIRE PREVENTION WEEK SPECIAL PROGRAM**
Fire plays a significant role in the ecosystems at Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The fire regime has varied over time in response to both climatic changes and human activity. The fire history of the landscape has been shaped by lightning, as well as by the land management practices of Native Americans, ranchers, loggers, the military, developers and, most recently, the National Park Service.
The Golden Gate National Recreation Area's Office of Fire Management, in accordance with the Fire Management Plan, manages fire in such a way as to retain its beneficial effects in the ecosystem while protecting resources, property and lives.
The goals of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area Fire Management Program are:
The Office of Fire Management monitors and responds to all wildand fires within the park and maintains an appropriate preparedness level in accordance with the park's Wildland Fire Step-Up Plan.
The Golden Gate National Recreation Area's Fire Management Program is part of the San Francisco Bay Area Network.
