The agency’s total firefighting budget is around $2.52 billion, which is basically broken up into two piles. The first pile is $1.14 billion for preparedness, which involves all the agency’s pre-fire season preparation, hiring, and training. The other pile is $708 million for suppression. This is all the frontline firefighting, and pays for hand crews, smoke jumpers, engines, air tankers, helicopters, incident management teams, and so on. (Okay smarty, I know that doesn’t add up to $2.5 billion. There are two smaller piles—$303 and $362 million respectively—that deal with prevention planning and the removal of grass, brush, and other potential fuel sources.)
" their footnote on the main title slide said it all --Impacts reported by Forest Service Regions. These do not include Region-wide impacts that occur in multiple states, nor national-level impacts. This list may not include all impacts—those that were realized later or those not reported by the Region."
