From the text:'This paper desribes two generalized decision models that partically characterize decision processes for the evaluation and execution of prescribed fires. Although the two models do not incorporate all the factors managers must consider in planning for prescribed burns, they provide a starting point for developing more complete decision models. A hypothetical burn is used to demonstrate the application of these models.'
