NWCG Executive Board
NWCG Welcomes the Department of Defense (DoD) as a Primary Member
The NWCG Executive Board formally welcomed DoD as a primary member on December 1st. "A key function of NWCG is the establishment of standards for the wildland fire community," said Shane McDonald, NWCG Executive Board Chair. "With the addition of DoD to the NWCG Executive Board, they will now be a part of the process to help create the common operating framework for wildland fire resources."

DoD manages 1 million acres for wildland fire annually across its 27 million acres of training and testing lands. The cross-jurisdictional nature of wildfire demands an interagency approach. Partnerships are key to wildfire planning, prevention, response and recovery.  Including DoD as an NWCG member is a critical step to enhancing interagency collaboration to prepare fire adapted communities, provide safe and effective wildfire response, and increase mission and landscape resilience.

NWCG About Us
National Wildfire Coordinating Group
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.
