Line Officer Guide


This guide for fire management was created to aid Line Officers who oversee fire management from the preseason through the life of a fire and after. It is sponsored by Forest Service, the National Line Officer Team (NLOT) and was developed by the WFM RD&A with recommendations from Agency Administrators and Line Officers.
