The Integrated Reporting of Wildland-Fire Information (IRWIN) service is a Wildland Fire Information and Technology (WFIT) affiliated investment, intended to provide an "end-to-end" fire reporting capability. IRWIN is tasked with providing data exchange capabilities between existing applications used to manage data related to wildland fire incidents. IRWIN is focused on the goals of reducing redundant data entry, identifying authoritative data sources, and improving the consistency, accuracy, and availability of operational data.

IRWIN can be thought of as a central hub that orchestrates data between the various applications. Users will continue to utilize the existing applications but some or all of the data needed to create an incident for example, will be pre-populated. Data is synchronized between participating applications to ensure the most current data is available. IRWIN conducts conflict detection and resolution on all new wildfire incidents to support a unique record for each ignition.
