Prescribed Fire, applying fire to the land following a plan, is a tool used by the Federal Agencies and some private land owners to accomplish various objectives. These objectives include, but are not limited to:

Wildland fire has always played an essential role in the ecological process and as a natural change agent. Aggressive total fire suppression has been the policy for wildland fire management agencies for decades. The knowledge and experience gained over these years have changed fire management philosophy in the Federal agencies. The complete exclusion of fire is now deemed to have been detrimental to the ecosystem and functioning. As a result of the devastating 1994 fire season, the extreme fire behaviors that consumed natural resources, private property and took the lives of the 14 fire fighters on the South Canyon fire, the Federal Wildland Fire Management Policy and Program Review was adopted in 1995. This policy provides direction for the Federal Agencies in the use of wildland fire including prescribed fire.

The Oregon Department of Forestry assists the Federal Agencies and private land owners in the development of plans for the application of prescribed fire.
