In August 2000, the Administration directed the Secretaries of Agriculture and the Interior to prepare a report that would recommend how best to respond to the year's severe wildland fires, reduce the impacts of fires on rural communities, and ensure sufficient firefighting resources in the future. The Secretaries were also asked to list actions that Federal agencies, in cooperation with States and local communities, could take to reduce immediate hazards to communities in the wildland-urban interface and to ensure that fire management planning and firefighter personnel and resources are prepared for extreme fire conditions in the future.
