State partners go by many names, such as the Florida Division of Forestry,
The Arizona State Land Department-Fire Management Division, the Minnesota
Department of Natural Resources, the California Division of Forestry
and Fire Protection and the Alaska Forest Service. Each has a unique
role in their state for fire protection and coordination with Federal
agencies for mutual fire assistance.
The USDA Forest Service State and Private Forestry, offers programs
to cooperate with and assist State wildland fire agencies. Through
our State partners, the Forest Service also helps rural and volunteer
fire departments with grants, training, and equipment.
In addition, State wildland fire agencies and the Forest Service
work together on many fuel reduction and fire prevention projects
across the country. Together, we are working hard to reduce fire
risk from wildland fire in wildland/urban interface communities.
