    Description

    Forest fire control in the Northeast is a bigger and more responsible job than most people realize.  State , Federal, and other agencies cur­ rently spend some 6 millions of dollars in prevention  efforts and in sup­pressing the 15 or 16 thousand fires that burn each year. There is good reason, therefore, to deve lop better and more uniform method s of damage appraisal so that the total fire bill--cost plus loss--can be determined with greater accuracy. It is only thus that the value of present and planned protection can b estimated.
