Edition Notes

  Fire planning and risk assessment are concerned with how often fires burn, what effects they have on wildland and urban values, and what opportunities exist to improve the situation through management actions. In the United States, most wildland fires are suppressed. Fires are detected, reported, and initial attack resources dispatched. Industries in Which Equity Value is Commonly Used. The most common use of equity value is to calculate the Price Earnings Ratio Price Earnings Ratio The Price Earnings Ratio (P/E Ratio) is the relationship between a company’s stock price and earnings per share. It gives investors a better sense of the value of a company. Resource Use Specialist Person responsible to the planning section chief for determining capabilities and limitations of resources at an incident. Resource Value-at-Risk Fire suppression planning tool providing a relative expression (in five classes) of fire effects on all resources (not the value of the resources themselves).   We value your privacy.

Wildland Recreation An authoritative guide to managing the ecological impacts ofrecreational activities on natural resources.

The challenges facing today's recreation resource managers are bothcomplex and daunting. Accommodating rapidly growing numbers ofrecreational visitors without sacrificing the ecological integrityof wildlands is a major challenge. Wildland Fire Leadership Values.

Three guiding values that should be the basis for the decisions that leaders make. The three values are: This value reminds leaders that those who follow are their greatest resource. Not all followers will succeed equally, but they all deserve respect. This book examines the pressures on rangeland ecosystems worldwide from human land use, over-hunting, and subsistence and commercial farming of livestock and crops.

Leading experts have pooled their experiences from all continents to cover the ecological, sociological, political, veterinary, and economic aspects of rangeland management today. Wildland Fire Incident Management Field Guide i PREFACE The Wildland Fire Incident Management Field Guide is a revision of what used to be called the Fireline Handbook, PMS This guide has been renamed because, over time, the original purpose of the Fireline Handbook had been replaced by the Incident Response Pocket Guide, PMS File Size: 1MB.

The government is entitled to receive quality supplies and services at fair prices. Under normal market conditions, competing offers ensure that adequate value is received.

The contracting officer relies on the IGCE to assist in the determination of the acquisition strategy, as well as. The smallest area that a wildland fire investigator can define based on the physical evidence of the fire pattern indicators, within the specific origin area, in which a competent ignition source came into contact with the first fuel ignited and combustion was sustained.

Source: Guide to Wildland Fire Origin and Cause Determination, PMS   NIST developed a model of interdependent household wildfire risk and examined its implications for a hypothetical fire-prone community.

One of the amazing results of the study was the determination that one person's wildfire prevention efforts can positively impact the outcome of their neighbors' homes. The Vegetation Management Program (VMP) is a cost-sharing program that focuses on the use of prescribed fire, and some mechanical means, for addressing wildland fire fuel hazards and other resource management issues on State Responsibility Area (SRA) lands.

resource specialists will all find value in this report. Managers and decision makers will be most interested in the overview of the assessment framework (sections 1 and 2), as well as the concluding sections describing the value of risk assessment and its role for.

Tools are provided for stream classification, survey data plotting, discharge gage analyses, hydraulic.

The unit also evaluates resources currently committed to the incident, the impact that additional responding resources will have on the incident, and anticipated resource needs.

Recovery Rates of Resources Summary References 7 Trends in Wildland Recreation Use and Impacts Early Recent and Projected Outdoor Recreation Use Trends in Wildland and Wilderness Use Trends in Wildland and Wilderness Users Conclusions drawn from trend synthesis   Wildland Recreation Policy is not only about how our system of wildlands came to be, but also about the political process through which we decide how these places should and should not be used.

Building on the historic origins of the National Park Service and USDA Forest Service, the authors show how the policy process affects current outdoor Reviews: 1. The actual numeric value of the index is an estimate of the amount of precipitation (in ths of inches) needed to bring soil back to saturation (a value of 0 being saturated).

The index deals with the top 8 inches of soil profile so the maximum KBDI value is (8 inches), the amount of precipitation needed to bring the soil back to saturation. California, University of, Wildland Research Center Wilderness and recreation–a report on resources, values and problems.

ESCAPED FIRE DETERMINATION and PROTOCOL. Resource requirements, as specified in the project prescribed burn plan, are those that are needed to keep the prescribed burn in prescription.

In the event that the prescribed fire exceeds the control capability of the required resources, contingency actions will be taken to bring the escape under. Your values reflect what is important to you. They are a shorthand way of describing your motivations.
