fire use is the management of naturally ignited wildland fires to accomplish
specific resource management objectives. Fire Management Plans define geographic
areas where wildland fire use is a management option. Fire use is the combination
of wildland fire use and prescribed fire application to meet resource objectives.
Several wildland fire modules are stationed across the U.S. to provide national self-sufficient, multi-skilled fire professionals to assist with fire use operations and planning. This includes planning, fire behavior monitoring, ignition, and holding responsibilities. Wildland fire modules also assist with prescribed fire, fire effects, and mechanical hazard fuels reduction projects.
The Black Hills wildland fire module is based at Jewel Cave National Monument near Custer, South Dakota. It is a seven person crew that assists with projects throughout the U.S. with an emphasis on projects in the Northern Great Plains.
