DescriptionA telephone survey of all national forest ranger districts in Region 8 obtained data describing the status of forest fire prevention program evaluation. Out of the 396 programs being conducted on the 105 districts in the South, only one program had undergone any sort of systematic evaluation. Survey data indicate that ranger district prevention personnel are aware of the lack of evaluation methods, but are unsure how to go about evaluating a program without the sole reliance on fire occurrence statistics.
