Planning Processes available in WFDSS

Each unit and agency has a set of Strategic Objectives and Management Requirements related to the landscape and its resources. These objectives and requirements guide decision-making for the unit, as well as incidents.

Pre-loading the Strategic Objectives and Management Requirements for an administrative unit into WFDSS helps to ensure that the incident managers are using this information as part of their incident decision-making process. Incident-level objectives and requirements should be based on these over-arching Strategic Objectives and Management Requirements.

Two types of planning processes are available for administrative units to use in WFDSS; Fire Management Unit (FMU) planning and Spatial Fire Planning (SFP). Depending on an administrative unit’s agency affiliation, one may be preferred or mandated over another. Data Managers can check with their Geographic Area Editor if they have questions.
