Unit Identifier Unit

The Unit Identifier Unit (UIU) provides national leadership in the approval and use of Unit Identifiers in support of effective fire management decision-making. Primary objectives include:

  • Manage NWCG data standards, business rules, and processes related to Unit Identifiers and associated information.
  • Publish current Unit Identifiers in the document NWCG Unit Identifiers (PMS 931).
  • Ensure standards and processes are implemented consistently by Geographic Area Coordination Centers, agencies, and applications.
