Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:CWSF is seeking proposals from qualified parties to analyze and synthesize the true costs associated with wildfire. The WFLC True Cost of Wildfire in the Western U.S. report has been well received and is often quoted in regional and national media outlets. In addition, the WFLC has completed the West Wide Fire Risk Assessment that includes regional GIS data that could be used for this update. The WFLC defines the true costs associated with wildland fire to be more than funds spent on prevention and suppression. A full accounting considers long-term and complex costs, including impacts to watersheds, ecosystems, infrastructure, businesses, individuals, and the local and national economy. Specifically, these costs include property losses (insured and uninsured), post- fire impacts (such as flooding and erosion), air and water quality damages, healthcare costs, injuries and fatalities, lost revenues (to residents evacuated by the fire, and to local businesses), infrastructure shutdowns (such as highways, airports, and railroads), and a host of ecosystem service costs that may extend into the distant future
