Description: The investigators will continue to integrate the STARFire system into the Wildland fire budgeting framework based on results from past and ongoing projects (incl. CSUCP-145, 147, and 149). STARFire is a scalable spatial fire planning and budgeting system. It operates at the local, state or national levels and combines the full spectrum of values (life, property, protection, and natureâ¿¿s services) with fire behavior information. STARFire demonstrates return on investment, quantifies performance and the impact of budget changes. STARFire supports agencies, planners and managers with wildfire decision accountability including: 1) a risk assessment for the entire planning unit that spatially identifies values at risk and the resources that would benefit from fire and by how much; 2) locates fuel treatments to maximize value added and return on investment; 3) analyzes initial attack/preparedness budget options and demonstrates how dispatch locations and preparedness strategies reduce risk and respond to fuel treatment programs; and 4) provides the ability to include the cost of smoke and smoke impacts in strategic planning.
