The Draft 2009 Quadrennial Fire Review

The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) has prepared a draft 2009 Quadrennial Fire Review (QFR). The NWCG is made up of representatives of the U.S. Forest Service and the four U. S. Department of Interior agencies that constitute the federal wildland fire bureaucracy. The 2009 QFR, like its predecessor, the 2005 QFR, is “a strategic evaluative process that develops an internal assessment of current programs and capabilities for comparison to future needs for fire management.”

The draft 2009 QFR has been made available through the International Association of Fire Chiefs [here].

In the draft, facilitator Dr. Al Hyde (a senior staff consultant on public management innovation for the Brookings Institution’s Center for Public Policy Education) requested comments and constructive criticism. We were only too happy to oblige.

W.I.S.E.’s comments regarding the draft 2009 Quadrennial Fire Review are [here].

Please enjoy, and pass them on.
