Whereas the Forest Service of the United States Department of Agriculture is 
        committed to increasing public information and awareness about wildfire 
        prevention and forest protection;
Whereas the Forest Service of the United States Department of Agriculture is 
        devoted to changing the public's behavior to prevent wildfires in an 
        effort to maintain and protect our Nation's precious resources; and
Whereas the Forest Service of the United States Department of Agriculture, the 
        National Association of State Foresters, and The Advertising Council 
        have provided extraordinary support and dedication to the purpose and
