Economic effects of large fires : application to the Cold Springs fire
MetadataShow full item record
Large wildfires disrupt the lives of families, workers, and employers. However, fire suppression and recovery efforts may provide economic opportunities. Understanding the impacts of large fires can help fire managers, policy makers, and community leaders plan for the challenges and opportunities of wildfires. Unlike with other natural hazards, there has been little research about how wildfires affect local economies. The purpose of this Joint Fire Science Program-funded project was to analyze the effects of large fires on labor markets and how fire suppression spending may mediate these effects.
