Fuels Treatments

Overview

Fuel Treatments are pulled from the systems of record into the Interagency Fuels Treatment Geospatial dataset using the NWCG Fuels Treatment Standard. These systems of record include the Forest Service Activity Tracking System (FACTS), the official system for tracking USDA Forest Service fuels accomplishments; and the National Fire Plan Operations and Reporting System (NFPORS), the national system for tracking combined fuels accomplishments for all agencies in the Department of Interior. The combined Interagency Fuels Treatment geospatial dataset depicts completed fuels treatments from four land management Agencies within the Department of Interior (National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and Bureau of Indian Affairs) as well as the Department of Agriculture (USDA Forest Service). 

The intent of this layer is to elevate the visibility of completed fuel treatment data, ensuring that these areas are accounted for during wildfire suppression planning, and that the treatment areas are available to specialists modeling fire behavior and spread. The data is updated yearly.

Update Cycle

Fuel Treatment data are delivered to WFDSS as a File Geodatabase and loaded into the application yearly.
