Description:

We undertook an exploration of these data (FMUs) to better understand how fire management objectives and corresponding planned incident responses vary across landscapes and ownerships. By capturing common themes across FMUs, we were able to establish a broad set of four standard response categories for purposes of classification. In this paper, we describe our methods for assigning FMUs to each of these categories, and we present results for the FMUs for which we have data.
