NWCG Position Catalog

Decorative banner. Various photos depicting wildland firefighting positions.
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.

The following Incident Position Descriptions (IPDs) are currently available for review: ABRO, ATIM, ATBM, DECK, EQTR, FIRB, FWBM, FWPT, HEBM, HLCO, HECM, HMGB, MXMS, PROC, PTRC, RAMP, RTCM, SEMG, TIME

The * after position titles denotes that the established FEMA National Qualifications System all-hazards position serves as the baseline for this NWCG wildland fire position.
