BLM-(MT), Prescribed Fire Assistance: Background: The BLM routinely requires assistance to implement prescribed fire projects. These projects are utilized to reduce accumulations of hazardous fuels, improve wildlife habitat, and reduce the negative effects of wildfire. The BLM would like to continue to utilize a qualified recipient for prescribed fire projects on BLM managed lands. Due to time constraints and rules and regulations inherent to prescribed fire operations, the recipient must be red carded at the appropriate levels for the assigned projects, and should be a close, available resource. The goal is to develop a good working relationship and understanding of the roles and responsibilities required to implement and manage prescribed fire operations. Objectives: Select parcels of BLM, Montana lands have been identified as candidates for fuels reduction treatments. The objective is to effectively and efficiently treat these parcels in accordance with BLMs policy and standards and the National Fire Plan. Public Benefit: Reduce accumulations of natural and activity fuels on BLM managed lands across Montana as determined by the NEPA process. The projects will efficiently reduce the risk to the public and natural resources from wildland fire.
