A Rangeland Fire Protection Associations (RFPA) are non-profit organizations established to prevent and suppress range fires.  They represent a collaborative effort among local private landowners, the BLM and the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL).  Idaho State law recently authorized formation of RFPAs on the model of timber fire protection associations. The BLM and IDL provide training to RFPAs at no cost.  IDL also facilitates equipment purchase and acquisition.  Landowners can then provide initial attack using their own equipment along with acquired equipment.

- It is governed and directed by you and members of your local community.
- It provides services to suppress range fires in your local area.
- It is a voluntary program.
- It is funded by fees set by your local Board of Directors. Funds managed by the Idaho Department of Lands may be available for initial start up.
- Equipment could be provided through the Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) program for the prevention and suppression of rural and wildland fires and for prescribed burning.
- Equipment could be strategically located by your RFPA’s Board of Directors throughout your area for quick response to fires.
- Training is provided by the Idaho Department of Lands and the Bureau of Land Management at no cost to the Association
