In the mid-1980s, public concern over the Parks' use of prescribed fire as a means of maintaining the ecological health of forest ecosystems lead to the cessation of all prescribed burning in the National Park Service. A panel was convened to review the Parks' fire management program in an attempt to balance public concern with resource benefit.
The series consists of reports, policies, proceedings, and public comments relating to the Parks' fire management program, particularly its use of prescribed fire as a resource management tool
