    Description

    A study is underway at the Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station to develop computer techniques for planning suppression efforts in large wildfires. A mathematical model for allocation of firefighting resources in a going fire has been developed. Explicit definitions are given for strategic and tactical planning functions. How the model might be used is illustrated by a fictitious but realistic problem. Limitations in the approach and ways in which the model might be improved are described.
