FIRESCOPE Board of Directors

The FIRESCOPE Board of Director’s role is maintaining and improving FIRESCOPE products and services [i.e., Incident Command System (ICS) and the Multi-Agency Coordination System (MACS)]. The decision-making process for these matters is built upon the FIRESCOPE organization and the “consensus” decision-making process that creates buy-in among diverse local, state, and federal fire agencies toward a common goal.

Mission Statement​

The mission of the FIRESCOPE Board of Directors is to provide recommendations and technical assistance to the Office of Emergency Services (OES); to maintain the FIRESCOPE Decision Process and continue the operation, development, and maintenance of the FIRESCOPE Incident Command System (ICS) and the Multi-Agency Coordination System (MACS); and maintain a system known as the FIRESCOPE Decision Process to continue statewide operation, development, and maintenance of the following FIRESCOPE developed Incident Command System (ICS) and Multi-Agency Coordination System (MACS) components.

  • Improved methods for coordinating multi-agency resources during major incidents.

  • Improved methods for forecasting fire behavior and assessing fire, weather and terrain conditions on an incident.

  • Standard terminology for improving incident management.

  • Improved multi-agency incident communications.

  • Multi-agency training on FIRESCOPE developed components and products/services.

  • Common mapping systems.

  • Improved incident information management.

  • Regional operational coordination centers for regional multi-agency coordination.

Vision Statement

The FIRESCOPE vision is to continue national leadership in the development of all-hazard incident management and multi-agency coordination systems, to enhance and encourage full participation by the California fire service in the statewide Fire and Rescue Mutual Aid System, and to provide a common voice for the California fire service relating to these issues.
