NWCG Standards for Wildland Fire Module Operations, PMS 430
The title of this document has changed from: Interagency Standards for Wildland Fire Module Operations.
The NWCG Standards for Wildland Fire Module Operations, PMS 430, standardizes procedures and expectations for Wildland Fire Modules (WFMs). These standards are to be used by staff, supervisors, specialists, and technicians for planning, administering, and conducting WFM operations.
These standards will also be used as a measure of WFM qualifications, capabilities, and expected performance, for both Type 1 and Type 2 WFMs.
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.
