Fire Regime and Condition Class (FRCC)
SEFEP is supporting the National FRCC Classification effort by
taking the lead in the development and compilation of information
regarding reference landscape conditions for the southeastern states.
In February 2004, the partnership hosted a reference condition
development workshop attended by 20
experts in the field of fire
ecology including representatives from the federal government,
academic institutions, The Nature Conservancy, and state natural
heritage programs. This group has been tasked with developing ecological
models for the major vegetation types of the southeast and they
will meet again in June 2004 to share their results and to initiate
a peer review process. For more information on FRCC, see www.frcc.gov.
partnership supports and encourages sharing of personnel and
equipment for fire activities by facilitating
Memoranda of Understanding
between parties. We encourage cooperative prescribed fire implementation
and monitoring on partners’ lands. Partners additionally
provide staff expertise and technical support for incident
management teams on wildland fires.
