Description: This "futuring" symposium addressed the possible, preferred, and probable status of wildland fire management and research in the year 2000 and beyond. Papers cover the fire protection needs of the public, management response to these perceived needs, and the research and education required to meet these needs. Also covered in a separate section are the interactions between forest user, manager, and researcher, as well as international issues. Nine papers, developed by the futuring process and presented at the symposium examine key trends, define preferred "visions" of fire management in the year 2000, and describe strategies to achieve these visions. One paper describes how the Incident Command System (ICS), which is popular among fire service agencies, was used to organize and conduct the symposium.

Key Words: artificial intelligence, expert systems, fire effects, fire management, futuring, prescribed burning
