Wildland Fire Decision Support System

Welcome to the Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS)!

Note: WFDSS now uses a new login process called FAMAuth. Refer to the WFDSS FamAuth Migration FAQ for more information.

An effort to update WFDSS is underway. Over the next few years we will be building a new user interface and updating underlying system architecture to incorporate new technology available since WFDSS was first built in 2007. To keep up with this effort and provide your feedback on pain points and issues you have experienced with the current WFDSS system and what improvements could be made in the next version of WFDSS, check out the Next Generation WFDSS section on the RD&A site for more information.
