Examining Trade-offs in Wildland Fire Management Decisions (2014)
SRS-2014-156 Reducing or mitigating the negative effects of wildland fire is a major priority in communities all across the United States and must be addressed across agencies and jurisdictional boundaries. The National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy is a multiyear effort by federal agencies working with states, tribes, and other interested publics to develop an integrated and comprehensive plan to collaboratively reduce human and ecological losses from wildfire.
Science benefits national fire planning effort (2011)
SRS-2011-08 As part of ongoing efforts to reduce human and ecological losses from wildfire, federal agencies responsible for wildland fire management are working with states, tribes, and other interested publics to develop a National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy. Scientists from the Southern Research Station Eastern Forest Environmental Threat Assessment Center (EFETAC) serve on a science and analysis team working with regional strategy committees to evaluate the relative consequences of alternative courses of action in wildland fire management. This trade-off analysis will provide important information that can be used to guide the national strategy.
