National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG)


The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) coordinates the efforts of federal and state wildfire management agencies to avoid duplication and to provide a means of constructively working together.

The NWCG provides information on training and qualifications, publications, tools and resources for wildfire personnel.
