We surveyed a diverse array of several hundred forests and found that about 90 percent of them showed clear evidence of burning in the distant past, before the policy of fire suppression was implemented in the early 1900s.
FireSafe Montana’s Enough is Enough campaign is an effort to provoke discussion around the issues surrounding wildland fire and the urban interface.
The increased risk to the loss of lives and property mirrors the expansion of the wildland urban interface. Regardless of this expansion and the growing number of personal property and values at risk in the wildland urban interface, public and firefighter safety must be management’s first concern.
A campaign that FireSafe Montana is initiating is called "Enough is Enough". This campaign focuses on the many issues of wildland fire in the urban interface.
