In the context of wildland fire, an emissions tracking system (ETS) is a database of wildland fire activity and emissions. These systems track data which facilitates coordination to mitigate air quality impacts. There are several examples of these systems in different regions of the U.S. For example, the WRAP Fire Emissions Tracking System (fets) tracks data for multiple western states. Other examples are specific to a particular state such as the Georgia Forestry Commission's Burn Permit Tracking System, Florida's Forestry Fire Management Information System (FMIS), and California's Prescribed Fire Information Reporting System (PFIRS).
