A Lifetime of Achievement - Bud Moore

Bud Moore may not mean much to the new generation firefighter, but his legacy in wildland fire transformed the world of fire. A former Director of Fire and Aviation in the USFS Northern Region, Bud Moore was influential in transforming fire management policies, including prescribed fire.

Bud Moore passed away in November 2010 at the age of 93 after a lifetime of dedication to forestry and conservation. The NWCG Leadership Subcommittee recognized Moore posthumously by presenting his family with a lifetime achievement Paul Gleason Lead by Example Award. Bill Miller, NWCG Leadership Subcommittee advisor, presented the award at the 11th Wildland Fire Safety Summit held in Missoula, MT, April 2011. The transcript of the presentation can be found on the WFLDP website.
