As part of a larger interdisciplinary study on “Fire, GIS, and Planning” we seek to provide the fire-planning resources needed by fire managers and the public to better understand the economic and environmental/ecological threats caused by the increasing number of fires. Our research seeks to assess the current potential for destructive wildfires in the Boise Foothills, as well as the attitudes of homeowners who may be impacted by a wildfire event.
