The FIRESCOPE Specialist and Working Groups
assist the Task Force in the development, implementation, and
maintenance of FIRESCOPE products. Representation on these groups
is determined by the issues being addressed and the subsequent
level of technical expertise required ensuring statewide representation.
The FIRESCOPE Task Force has the responsibility for determining
the need for and agency make–up of Specialist and Working
Groups and providing direction in support of FIRESCOPE product
development and maintenance.
Each Specialist/Working Group will have a Task Force Liaison
responsible for providing their group with Task Force direction
For the purpose of differentiating between Specialist and Working
Groups, Specialist Groups are established to address long–term
needs and Working Groups are established to address a specific
need or short–term issue. Once the need or issue has been
addressed, the Working Group will be disbanded.
