Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: This paper compares the cost of using Forest Service fire crews versus contract fire crews. Results suggest that if sufficient work is available to keep a Forest Service crew productively employed throughout a fire season, then the daily cost of a Forest Service type II crew is lower than the daily cost of a contract crew.
Keywords: Type II fire crew, contact fire crew, wildfire suppression, costs, Oregon, Washington
