NFIRS 5.0 Element: ‘City Town Village Local Acres Burned Percentage (%)’
Définition : The percent of the total acres burned for properties managed by City, Town, Village, or Local entity
Purpose : The number of acres burned by property ownership is of significant value to local fire departments as well as to State and Federal wildland agencies. It provides a means to determine the frequency and impact of fire on property managers, especially major holders of land, such as ranchers, lumber and paper companies, agricultural producers, and Federal and State governments. This information also can help target fire protection programs at entities having the greatest risk or loss potential.
Entry : Indicate the percent of the total acres burned for each type of ownership involved, then check or mark the box that best describes the principle entity responsible for the property where the fire originated. If responsibility cannot be determined or is unknown, check or mark the Undetermined box.
