NASF Environmental Assessment Wildland Fire Management Plan


The United States Department of the Navy has prepared this Environmental Assessment in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, as implemented by Council on Environmental Quality regulations and Navy regulations for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act. The Proposed Action would involve the Navy implementing a Wildland Fire Management Plan at Naval Air Station Fallon (including the Fallon Range Training Complex) in Churchill County, Nevada.

This Environmental Assessment evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative to the following resource areas: biological resources; cultural resources; air quality; public health and safety; water resources; visual resources; topography, geology, and soils; and environmental justice

Proposed Action

The United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy (Navy) proposes to Implement the wildland fire management actions identified in the 2022 Wildland Fire Management Plan (WFMP) for Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon (including the Fallon Range Training Complex) (Navy, 2022a).
The NAS Fallon Main Station and the Fallon Range Training Complex are located within Churchill County, Nevada and encompass approximately 239,552 acres of fee-owned lands and public lands that have been withdrawn for military use.

The goals of the WFMP are to mitigate wildland fire hazards on NAS Fallon assets and resources; enhance habitat through preventative fuels treatments and post-fire remediation; collect and analyze fire data and implement adaptive management; and build and strengthen interagency cooperation. The WFMP also identifies measures to minimize and address military-caused fires.

The WFMP is a component of the NAS Fallon Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan and is a living document, thus it will continue to be revised as more data becomes available.

The Navy has prepared this Environmental Assessment in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 775 parts 1500–1508) and Navy NEPA Regulations (CFR 775).
