Description
 
This report presents results from a study of San Bernardino National Forest (California) community residentsäó» experiences with and perceptions of fire, fire management, and the Forest Service. Using self-administered surveys and focus group discussions, the authors found that participants had personal experiences with fire, were concerned about fire, and felt knowledgeable about effective fire management. Consideration of future consequences, a measure of time orientation, was not found to be related to beliefs about and reactions to wildfire. Trust in the Forest Service was related to a number of fire-associated attitudes. Findings help shed light on the experiences of residents living in fire-prone communities and highlight the importance of trust in understanding public perceptions about fire management. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
