Fire Management and Suppression Resource Types (Draft)

FEMA’s National Integration Center is seeking public feedback on 24 Fire Management and Suppression resource typing documents. This 30-day national engagement period will conclude at 5 p.m. ET on December 10, 2021.

These resource typing documents enhance the interoperability and effectiveness of mutual aid by establishing baseline qualifications for NIMS-typed teams, personnel and equipment. This facilitates the sharing of deployable resources at all jurisdictional levels.

National engagement provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the draft documents to ensure they are relevant to all implementing partners.

To provide comments on the draft documents, complete the feedback form below and submit it to FEMA-NIMS@fema.dhs.gov no later than 5 p.m. ET on Dec. 10, 2021.
