Wildfires have increased in frequency and severity in many countries around the world, causing considerable environmental, economic and social consequences to fire-prone communities in recent years. As a result, fire management agencies face ever-growing complexity in their management decisions and interactions with the public. Successful interactions most often depend on trustworthy relations among affected stakeholders, particularly agency personnel and property owners at the wildland-urban interface. Without trust, the public may become frustrated in their interactions with the agency and withhold support for management decisions.
