Description

A report to the NWCG Smoke Committee examining the degree of smoke training (via completion of 'Smoke Management Techniques' or 'Prescribed Fire Plan Preparation') for positions identified by a previous report as having smoke management criteria within their position task books. Smoke management and air quality trainings are being used to a greater extent than is indicated by minimum position requirements for prescribed fire and suppression positions. Additionally, there are multiple levels of smoke responsibility, where different positions require less detail, or different knowledge, than is currently conveyed in NWNG courses.
