    Description

    The law is a strict master regarding any kind of deliberately set fires. The value of natural resources and resource management is low on the list of priorities for this state’s lawmakers. BEWARE is the key word for those who dare to challenge the traditional notion that all fires must be extinguished immediately, except those within the safe confines of your fireplace or backyard barbecue. In order for fuel management with fire to be more easily utilized, the laws regarding fire management and resource protection will need to be amended to include the value of fuel management as a resource protection tool.
