The contingent choice method is applied to elicit the social preferences regarding fire prevention measures in terms of their impact on fire behaviour – fire propagation and intensity- and to estimate the value of these measures for the society. The results of the study show, that additional fire prevention measures increase the welfare of the Catalan population and that fire propagation is the issue that most concern the population. This information may be used by policy makers and environmental managers to design their programmes and activities.
