    Description

    The fire program planner faces an increasingly complex task as diverse--and often contradictory--messages about objectives and constraints are received from political, administrative, budgetary, and social processes. Our principal challenge as we move into the 21st century is not one of looking for flashier technology to include in the planned fire program. Rather, we must give major attention to the development of a better, more effective understanding by politicians, administrators, and the general public of the fire program alternatives available, their risks, and their real social, environmental, and economic costs and consequences over time.
