Missouri National Recreational River Fire Management Plan/EA
The major components of the fire management plan are: 1) implementation of Director's Order #18 Wildland Fire Management, USDI, NPS, 2005, which requires each National Park with vegetation capable of burning to prepare a fire management plan, 2) wildland fire suppression with no use of wildland fire, and 3) use of prescribed fire to reduce fire hazard and to attain vegetation management objectives.
The fire management plan broadly covers land outside of direct control of the NPS. However, the plan will apply only to NPS fee-owned lands within the Missouri National Recreational River. It will not apply to private property, property where the NPS has purchased less-than-fee interest (i.e., easement), or other public lands within or adjacent to the boundary, unless the private landowner or public land manager wishes to conduct cooperative prescribed fires.
In addition, a copy of the plan may be obtained by contacting Stephen Wilson, Resource Management Specialist, at 402- 667-5524.
