In June 2006 the decision was made by the Pacific Northwest Wildfire Coordinating Group to formulate a new working group on the model of the NWCG Fire Environment Working Team. This decision represents a fresh opportunity to the Pacific Northwest region to explore ways to better integrate the functional areas which deal the environmental conditions which influence so many aspects of the wildland fire management program.

The Team will address the needs of the wildland fire management community by:

  • Providing leadership in establishing and maintaining consistent regional policies, standards, and procedures related to the wildland fire environment
  • Promoting safe and efficient use of fire management resources by advancing the science and application of the fire environment elements within the Northwest Geographic Area.
  • Facilitating coordination among fire weather, fire behavior, fire danger rating, fire research, predictive services, and smoke/air quality groups.
  • Promoting high standards for measuring, predicting and monitoring wildland fire environmental conditions.
  • Providing an interagency forum to collect and make recommendations on application, training, emerging technologies, and enhancements related to science and technology describing the wildland fire environment.
  • Soliciting, assessing, and prioritizing users’ needs and providing a forum for input into research priorities.
