Texas Ranch Wildfire Program Updated:07/2019

Texas A&M Forest Service began development of a grassroots approach to community protection that involves ranchers, fire departments, state agencies, local governments, and private sector.  Much of the range lands in Texas are owned and actively managed by ranchers and agricultural producers. The first phase of the Texas Ranch Wildfire Program will work with landowners to identify priority areas, points of contact, mapping of water sources, sensitive areas, fences, gates, and other zones within the ranch. This will allow firefighters to make tactical decisions that reflect the landowners’ priorities. Additionally, this information will provide a foundation for post-fire recovery services.
