Crusberg, Theodore C.
This project examined the issues of wildfires in the southwest and evaluated several high-level tactics for reducing the damage wildfires causes, concluding that while fire suppression is still necessary to protect communities, educating residents will have a greater influence over the damage caused by future large wildfires. This conclusion was based on an examination of causes of increasing fire damage and the relative influence of several methods for improvement.
