2022 NWCG Standards for Prescribed Fire Planning and Implementation, PMS 484
The revised standards are available to assist Prescribed Fire Burn Bosses. The NWCG Prescribed Fire Plan Template, PMS 484-1, is supplemental to these standards. A summary of changes is also available.
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.
