Research Perspectives on the Public and Fire Management: A Synthesis of Current Social Science on Eight Essential Questions

Eight Essential Questions: What is the public's understanding of fire's role in the ecosystem? Who are trusted sources of information about fire? What are the public's views of fuels reduction methods, and how do those views vary depending on citizens' location in the wildland-urban interface or elsewhere? What is the publics' understanding of smoke effects on human health, and what shapes the public's tolerance for smoke? What are homeowners' views of their responsibilities for home and property protection and mitigation, e.g., defensible space measures? What role does human health and safety play in the publics' perceptions of fire and fire management? What are the publics' views on the role and importance of costs in wildfire incident response decisions? To the extent that information is available, how do findings differ among ethnic and cultural groups, and across regions of the country? Provided by FireScience.gov and the USDA
