Catastrophic Fire Reduction
Governor Gary. R. Herbert
My challenge to the steering committee is to develop a comprehensive and systematic strategy to reduce the size, intensity and frequency of catastrophic wildland fires in Utah. In doing so, we can drastically reduce the expenditure of resources by conditioning our forests and rangelands to resist wildfires, rather than spending many times that amount to fight fires and repair the post fire damage to our property, air quality and water systems.
