    Description

    Describes, from a historical perspective, methods used to characterize fire prevention problems and evaluate prevention programs and discusses past research efforts to bolster these analytical and management efforts. Highlights research on the sociological perspectives of the wildfire problem and on quantitative fire occurrence prediction and program evaluation systems. Focuses on current and future advances in fire prevention management due to research in four critical areas: modeling fire occurrence, measuring prevention effectiveness, measuring economic efficiency, and optimizing program mix.
