Item description for Wildfire Risk: Human Perceptions and Management Implications (RFF Press) (Rff Press) by Wade E. Martin, Carol Raish & Brian Kent...

Wildfire Risk follows from an increasing awareness among fire experts that relying on fire behavior models from the physical sciences to design a risk management program is no longer sufficient and that simply increasing public knowledge related to wildfire hazard does not necessarily lead to appropriate risk reduction behaviors. Public land managers, property developers, landowners, and politicians must ask more about the social and psychological factors that motivate people to respond appropriately to risk.

Thus far the majority of research and applied work about human responses to wildfire mitigation has been directed at individuals rather than communities. Drawing heavily upon health and risk communication, the contributors to Wildfire Risk highlight the differences between the ways that individuals and communities respond to wildfire risk. They discuss how outreach and education can influence individual and community behavior, and they explore differences among ethnic/racial groups and between genders with regard to values, views, and attitudes about wildfire risk and management. They explore the role of public participation in each stage of wildfire risk assessment and mitigation, as well as in planning for evacuation and recovery after fire.

Wildfire Risk concludes with a dedicated section on risk-modeling, with perspectives from the decision sciences, geography, operations research, psychology, experimental economics, and other social sciences.
