Planning Section Chief Type 3*
Changes to the footnote language:
The Planning Section Chief Type 3 (PSC3) position is also utilized in the DOI All Hazard Qualification System. The FEMA All Hazard Planning Section Chief PTB is appropriate for use with this position and is available on the NWCG website.
Type 3 Position standards are being introduced to provide an agreed to minimum standard for National Mobilization and to help develop local capability. Currently the PSC3, LSC3, and FSC3 positions are utilized by FEMA and the Department of the Interior All Hazard qualification program.
NWCG recognizes the ability of cooperating agencies at the local level to jointly define and accept each other’s qualifications for initial attack, extended attack, large fire operations, and prescribed fire.
Position qualification pathways for the LSC3, PSC3, and FSC3 positions include both equivalency and position task book alternatives for position qualification. FEMA position task books will be utilized for these positions and are available at training.fema.gov/position%20specific%20taskbooks/taskbook_list.asp.
