Full community costs of wildfire

Source(s):  Headwaters Economics

This report summarizes the accumulated impacts and associated costs of wildfires at the local, state, and federal level in the United States. Drawing from existing literature and case studies, wildfire impacts are categorized into short-term expenses including suppression costs spent on firefighting, and long-term damages including costs that accrue in the months and years after a wildfire. The report also presents how integration of wildfire risk into planning documents can contribute to wildfire risk reduction. 

The purpose of this report is to:

  1. identify the variety of wildfire impacts,
  2. determine who pays for related wildfire costs, and
  3. estimate total costs for a potential wildfire in Park County, Montana.
