Fire Cooperators

Multiple agencies gather for pre-fire season demonstration.

The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is one of the most complex units of the National Park System. Wildland fire and fire suppression efforts further add to the complexity. It is important that good communication between cooperating resources is pre-established, especially during times of fast moving Santa Ana wind driven fires.

In order to protect both the natural environment and our communities, all agencies must work together.
