DescriptionFOCUS (Fire Operational Characteristics Using Simulation) is a computer simulation model for evaluating alternative fire management plans. This final report provides a broad overview of the FOCUS system, describes two major modules-fire suppression and cost, explains the role in the system of gaming large fires, and outlines the support programs and ways of implementing the system. Retrieval Terms: fire management planning, fire suppression cost, simulation, mathematical models, FOCUS (computer program).
