The GYA Fire Management Team includes fire management officers from each GYA unit, who meet each spring and fall to review fire management planning status and operational procedures. GYA fire managers provide peer review of individual unit fire management plans, and develop procedures for coordinated management of large and or complex fire incidents within the GYA.
