Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Incident Replacement Guidance, Memo 22-05
Currently, a fleet rate has not been established for agency-owned UAS therefore unlike manned aircraft a daily availability rate or applicable hourly flight rate for operations is not being assessed when a UAS is assigned to an incident. Most UAS and related support equipment are purchased and maintain at a local unit level, Due to the widespread incident use and the unique situation of a “use rate” not being assessed to the incident we have determined that an interim incident replacement process needed to be developed. Therefore, agency-owned UAS utilized on wildfire incidents should use the Property Loss or Damage Report (OF-289) process for consumable/replacement parts.

Our mission is to provide national leadership to enable interoperable wildland fire operations among federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners.  NWCG operations standards are interagency by design; they are developed with the intent of universal adoption by the member agencies.  However, the decision to adopt and utilize them is made independently by the individual member agencies and communicated through their respective directives systems.
