The Division has 10 separate but interdependent program functions that address fire management and suppression. Each program function represents a specific management need but is dependent and impacted by the other program functions. None of the program functions can stand-alone and still meet the responsibilities of the Division as defined by State Law.
The 10 functional program areas are:
- 1. Fire Suppression
- 2. Prescribed Fire
- 3. Wildland Fire Training
- 4. Fire Aviation Support
- 5. Fire Management
- 6. Hazardous Fuels Mitigation
- 7. Volunteer Fire Assistance
- 8. Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) and Firefighter Property (FFP)
- 9. Dispatch
- 10. Fire Prevention
Each program area supports the functions of the others and vice versa. Changes in any one area directly impacts all areas.
