A term used in firefighting and emergency management to describe the process of controlling and preventing the spread of a fire or other hazardous event. In the context of wildfires, containment refers to the establishment of control lines, firebreaks, or natural barriers around a fire, effectively limiting its ability to spread further. The containment percentage often serves as an indicator of the progress made by firefighting crews in managing a wildfire, with 100% containment meaning that the fire is fully under control and no longer poses a threat. Legal disputes related to wildfires, such as the Calf Canyon/Hermit’s Peak Fire, may involve questions about the adequacy and efficiency of containment efforts, the allocation of resources, and the responsibilities of different agencies in mitigating wildfire risks and damages.
