Abstract:Discussion of fire-damage appraisal in relation to fire-protection planning shows a need for a standard appraisal system on all federal lands. Fire control costs and damages on an interior Alaska and a northern Minnesota fire are compared; application of both Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service appraisal criteria to the Minnesota fire produces considerable differences. Control levels cannot be optimized without relating costs to damage.
