ABSTRACT

Simulating the Expected Value of Changing Spatial Distributions of Wildfire Resources in Response to Wildfire Probability Outlooks   [open pdf - 477KB]

From the Executive Summary: "The scope of this research was to place an expected value on fire potential information given to wildfire managers by Predictive Services. Knowing that wildland fire managers pre-position suppression resources based on this information, a simulation was used to model Initial Attack (IA) operations and resulting fire size (and therefore, fire cost) to compare the potential cost savings that would occur given better positioning of IA wildfire suppression resources."
