Fireline Road

Rockledge, Florida 32955, United States

Created By: Environmentally Endangered Lands Program


The road you're walking on has more than one purpose. In addition to providing maintenance vehicles access to the Sanctuary, roads like these serve as "fire lines" or "fire breaks" during prescribed burns. The three components needed to sustain a fire are 1) heat, 2) fuel, and 3) oxygen. A fire line removes fuel from the fire by widely separating the areas of vegetation. This helps to keep the fire contained in just the area scheduled to be burned.
