Description: The analysis of alternative fire management programs should be integrated into the land and resource management planning process, but a single fire management analysis model cannot meet all planning needs. Therefore, a set of simulation models that are analytically separate from integrated land management planning models are required. The design of four levels of fire management analysis that contribute to the planning process has been developed. The interactions among these four levels and between the fire management analysis and the planning process are designed for consistency and analysis efficiency. These analytical models emphasize economic efficiency and risk consequences of fire management program options.

Key Words: economic efficiency, risk, probability modeling, fire suppression
