Deleting an Incident

Dispatchers can delete incidents within their geographic area for up to 72 hours unless someone accepts incident ownership. National Editors can delete any incident until a decision has been published. No other roles have incident deletion privileges within WFDSS.

Remember, incidents are part of the official system of record for fire management, and should not be deleted without a good reason (e.g., duplicate entries for the same incident).

To delete an incident:

  1. From within the WFDSS application, choose the Incident tab. The Incident List appears.
  2. Select the incident you want to edit, then click Delete Incident. A message appears asking if you are sure.
  3. Click Yes.

The incident is removed from the incident list.
