Database Storage System

The NWSA Database Storage System is a national database, recognized by Agencies and administered by NWSA. It tracks firefighters, instructors and company trainings and certifications. Based on data in the system, NWSA issues Incident Qualification Cards to member company employees on an annual basis. Only an NWSA recognized instructor may input data into this system. Agency personnel may have limited access to verify training data on an individual such as name, qualifications and employer.
