WFDSS Training


The Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS) a decision support system intended to assist agency administrators and fire managers in providing analysis and documenting rationale used in developing planning decisions for wildland fire incidents.

WFDSS was conceived as a way of integrating the various applications used to manage incidents into a single system, which streamlines the analysis and reporting processes.

  1. Combines desktop applications for fire modeling into a web-based system for easier data acquisition.
  2. Provides an easy way for fire managers and analysts to accurately document their decision-making process by allowing results of analyses to be attached to the decision point and included in the final incident report.
  3. Provides one decision process and documentation system for all types of wildland fires.
  4. This is a web-based application for easier sharing of analyses and reports across all levels of the federal wildland fire organization.
  5. Introduces economic principles into the fire decision process.

This WFDSS training will encompass several components. Students will review and discuss key terminology, gain understanding in the function and operation of the application, and work through an overview of the application using a fire scenario. The intended student audience should be comprised of both agency administrators and wildland fire personal tasked with WFDSS responsibility.
