*The Crosswalk was developed by analyzing and comparing National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) structural firefighting standards with National Wildland Coordinating Group (NWCG) wildland firefighting Position Task Books. The resulting Crosswalk identifies wildland skills and knowledge not incorporated within standard structural firefighting training. By incorporating a structural firefighter's existing fire suppression knowledge and skills, use of Crosswalk reduces required classroom hours, minimizes curriculum redundancies, and makes efficient use of limited training hours.
