The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) released the 2020 NWCG Standards for Wildland Fire Position Qualifications (PMS 310-1). NWCG positions enable consistent and uniform performance by personnel mobilized under National Incident Management System – Incident Command System principles (NIMS-ICS).
The NWCG Position Catalog provides comprehensive information about each position for which the NWCG establishes qualifications standards. Agency-specific positions, such as those located in the Federal Wildland Fire Qualifications Supplement, are not included.
PMS 310-1 is now published as web-based content. Information is still available to print from the position catalog. The NWCG Wildland Fire Position Qualification Flowchart (PMS 308) is also available to print.
