The authors present an analysis of the problem of rating forest fire danger, their conception of the ideal data and methods for doing so, and the scheme which they have evolved as an approach toward this conception. The scheme described is now being employed as a means of gauging the intensity of fire organization needed in California forests and adds to the growing list of such devices that have been developed independently in various regions to permit better planning and better use of man power in controlling fires.
