Title: Better Building Blocks

Author: Renner, Cheryl R.; Haines, Terry K.; Reams, Margaret A.;

Date: 2010

Source: Wildfire 19(2):10-16 (March/April)

Publication Series: Other

Description: As researchers for the National Database of State and Local Wildfire Mitigation Programs, we began cataloging programs to reduce wildfire risk on private land in 2001. Over the years, more than 250 programs in 35 states were described at, and we wondered about their relative success. Was there one type of program that wildfire managers would agree was the most effective? Did different programs work for different people in different states?
