Throughout this week, we reflect on wildland fire incidents that have taken the lives of many of our brothers and sisters. Since 2014, this week has been designated to honor the fallen and take a deeper look at lessons learned from those incidents. Unfortunately, that can be a double-edged sword that affects individuals in different ways. Memories and emotions of these incidents and the loss of loved ones often resurface. 

This year, as we take a moment to honor our fallen, please remember it is important to check on those around us who may be impacted and ensure they know there is a support system and they are not alone. Wildland fire is a close-knit community, and it takes all of us to ensure that no one feels alone during difficult times. A simple phone call, text, or visit goes a long way. 

Additional resources are available with each day's topics.  We encourage you to give this Week of Remembrance the time and attention it deserves, and that will likely take more than 6 minutes each day.

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.
