Planning Processes

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.

The unit's WFDSS Data Manager works with Unit personnel to develop spatial data to support the planning process they've chosen to use, and then work with their Agency's WFDSS/GIS Lead to get FMU or Strategic Objective (SO) shapes uploaded into the system. Other supporting shapes such as Management Requirements and Other Unit Shapes can be uploaded by a Data Manager.

Once a planning process has been created, in Training or Production, it can be exported/imported into the other system. Matching planning processes in Training and Production allow for pre-season refresher training that mimics an active incident and better prepares units when active incidents occur.
