    The Office of Inspector General's 2006 audit of Forest Service fire management operations added yet another voice to the growing chorus calling on the Federal wildland fire community to get more fire on the ground (OIG 2006). The 1995 National Fire Plan and the 2001 Implementation Plan identify the critical role of wildland fire use in reducing hazardous fuels conditions, reducing risk to property and natural resources, and reducing costs. Yet, meeting these goals poses significant organizational challenges, particularly when it comes to fire management's capacity to safely manage fire on the landscape.
