National Fire Plan Operations & Reporting System
The National Fire Plan Operations and Reporting System (NFPORS) is an inter-departmental, inter-agency automated data management and reporting system developed, operated, and maintained by the Department of the Interior (DOI) collaboratively with the Department of Agriculture (USDA). NFPORS is funded by DOI and USDA, with DOI as the lead agency and therefore DOI provides the majority of full-time employee effort. NFPORS is used to manage the National Fire Plan, a mandated program that was begun in 2001 to provide accountability for hazardous fuels reduction, burned area rehabilitation projects, and community assistance activities.
The NFPORS user community includes all federal wildland fire management bureaus in the DOI, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), National Park Service (NPS), and Bureau of Reclamation (BOR); and, the USDA Forest Service. NFPORS reports, including the annual National Fire Plan Accomplishments Report, are cost- and time-efficient products that replace tedious manual data calls and data compilation methods of 2001. NFPORS provides managers with the ability to answer detailed National Fire Plan questions in real-time at national, bureau, regional, state, and field-level offices. These reports are used as major high-level decision making tools for continued appropriate funding for the national wildfire program.
Planning and accomplishment reports are available directly from the worldwide web to all users with approved accounts. There are a variety of prepared reports designed by users that show the information in several views. Reports may be downloaded, reformatted, or printed directly from the website. Annual reports, year-to-date reports, performance measure reports, and agency-specific reports are all available at the touch of a button.
