Changes in fire-dependent ecosystems, fuel accumulations, and an ever-increasing population in the wildland-urban interface have increased fire management complexity and expenditures.

By tapping the private capital market, federal agencies could reallocate current spending and firefighting activities, while hedging against the risk of loss in severe fire years.
