Reference Manual 58 Structural Fire Management
Source: National Park Service
Reference Manual 58: Structural Fire Management provides detailed and comprehensive guidance on implementing a service-wide structural fire management policy for the National Park Service. The National Park Service’s policy on structural fire is expressed in the NPS Management Policies and in Director’s Order 58: Structural Fire Management. Reference Manual 58 (RM 58) provides NPS field employees with references, operating policies, standards, procedures, general information, recommendations, and examples
to assist them in carrying out the Management Policies and Director’s Order. While certain chapters or sections provide important guidance by themselves, there is an interrelationship among the chapters that provides clarity and continuity for carrying out the
management of NPS structural fire programs.
