Memo 22-003: Rationale for Assignment of Complex Incident Management Teams (CIMT) During 2022 Pilot Phase
This memorandum provides information on the use of the NWCG Wildland Fire Risk and Complexity Assessment (RCA), PMS 236, during the 2022 pilot phase of implementation of Complex Incident Management (CIM).
NWCG will solicit feedback on the RCA for a revision that will provide an overall complexity rating to inform decision-making.
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.
