Wildfire Suppression: Funding Transfers Cause Project Cancellations & Delays, Strained Relations, & Management Disruptions
Barry T. Hill (au); David P. Bixler (au). In 2003, wildfires burned roughly 4 million acres in the U.S., destroyed over 5,000 structures, took the lives of 30 firefighters, & cost over $1 billion to suppress. The substantial expense of fighting wildfires has exceeded the funds appropriated for wildfire suppression (WS) nearly every year since 1990. To pay for WS costs when the funds appropriated are insufficient, the Forest Service & the Interior Dept. have transferred funds from other programs. This report identifies: the amount of funds transferred & reimbursed for WS since 1999, & the programs from which agencies transferred funds; the effects on programs from which funds were taken; & alternative approaches that could be considered for estimating annual WS costs & funding WS.
