Do Forest Protection Agencies Help Start Forest Fires?
Abstract:A sociologist, comparing public relations activities among units of a southern forestry commission, identifies three distinctive "work strategies" and describes how they influence public attitude. From this field study, he develops a partial explanation (model) of how a unit's actions and policies influence achievement of long-run management goals. A significant implication of the model is that differences in organizational structure and approaches to community relationships can affect management success--in this case forest fire reduction.
