NWCG User Guide for Glossary of Wildland Fire, PMS 937
The title of this document has changed from: User Guide for Development and Maintenance of NWCG Glossary of Wildland Fire Terminology.
The NWCG User Guide for Glossary of Wildland Fire provides guidance on the development and review of glossary entries approved by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG).
Within this guide, users and committees can find instructions on the glossary process; tips for viewing the glossary on the NWCG website; guidance for committees and subcommittees assigned ownership of glossary terms, including how to request, develop, and revise a glossary entry; technical requirements for complete glossary entries; and a list of contacts for support.
Our mission is to provide national leadership to enable interoperable wildland fire operations among federal, state, tribal, and local 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.
