Fire Management

The Fire Management Plan for Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area describes how the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) program benefits park wildlife, visitors and park neighbors. The WUI program involves the cooperation between park neighbors and the park in addressing the park boundaries so that neither the park nor the homeowner's property encourages the start or the spread of a wild fire. Cutting and removing overgrown vegetation and overhanging branches, eliminating piles of dried leaves and other burnable material, proper storage of flammable vegetation and fuels play a major role in fire control. Fire prevention needs to be planned for in advance, so that fires are avoided when weather conditions are ripe for a quick starting continuous burn. Fire weather can be checked on a daily basis.
