NWCG positions enable consistent and uniform performance by personnel mobilized by position under NIMS-ICS principles. The position catalog provides comprehensive information about each NWCG position. Positions are managed by the NWCG committees - https://www.nwcg.gov/positions/committee-assignments

The Position Catalog contains information on NWCG positions only- those for which NWCG establishes qualification standards. Agency-specific positions such as those located in the Federal Wildland Fire Qualifications Supplement are not included in this catalog.
