The Performance Scales were developed to help improve feedback to Incident Management Teams and Agency Administrators involved in complex, inter-jurisdictional wildfires with the aim of contributing to learning for more safe and effective wildfire response.

Three sets of performance measures are available to you. These are:

OVERALL PERFORMANCE MEASURES FOR COMPLEX, INTERJURISDICTIONAL WILDFIRES– these are intended for multiple participants involved in the incident, such as the IMT, cooperating local agencies, and local host agency/units. They will provide a comprehensive picture of performance across multiple dimensions associated with a complex, inter-jurisdictional wildfire.

IMT PERFORMANCE ON COMPLEX, INTERJURISDICTIONAL WILDFIRES—these are intended to be administered to local cooperators and agency administrators for the purpose of providing feedback on the Incident Management Team’s performance.

AGENCY ADMINISTRATOR PERFORMANCE ON COMPLEX, INTERJURISDICTIONAL WILDFIRES—these are intended to be administered to the Incident Management Team for the purpose of providing feedback on the Agency Administrators’ performance.

These performance scales were created by Drs. Branda Nowell and Toddi Steelman, as part of the FireChasers project operated out of North Carolina State University. www.firechasers.ncsu.edu. Funding was provided by the National Science Foundation, Joint Fire Science Program, USFS Northern Research Station, North Carolina State University and the University of Saskatchewan.
