Description
 
Wildland fire plays an important ecological role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. However, various land management practices, including fire suppression, have disrupted the normal frequency of fires and have contributed to larger and more severe wildland fires. Wildland fires cost billions to fight each year, result in loss of life, and cause damage to homes and infrastructure. In FY 2009 through FY 2014, the five federal wildland fire agencies obligated a total of $8.3 billion to suppress wildland fires. This report examines (1) key changes the federal wildland fire agencies have made in their approach to wildland fire management; (2) how the agencies assess the effectiveness of their wildland fire management programs; and (3) how the agencies determine the distribution of their wildland fire management resources. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
