Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area is located in north central Georgia. The park consists of several units scattered through metropolitan Atlanta. Wildland Fire Associates (WFA) developed an analysis for an integrated fire management plan (wildfire and prescribed burning) and fuels management (WUI) program. The purpose of the report was to assess the potential natural and anthropogenic hazards of fire and associated fuels build-up in the urban interface. WFA conducted internal and external scoping, agency and public coordination, and agency and public presentations of the final document.
