National Fire Situation Report

Level 3
Increased mobilization of resources through CIFFC is required to support operations in the active agencies. Agency priorities may need to be considered as a necessary measure to address the demand for shared resources among multiple active agencies. There is a moderate probability that drawing down resources from non-active agencies may pose a risk should existing conditions change.
  • Significant wildland fire activity is occurring in one or more agencies, with incident management (IMTs) actively engaged.
  • Demand and mobilization of interagency resources through CIFFC is moderate to high.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is normal for time of year.

Geographic Areas accomplish incident management objectives utilizing local resources with little or no national support.
  • Conditions are not favorable to support significant wildland fire activity in most geographic areas.
  • Resource capability is adequate with little or no mobilization of resources occurring through the National Interagency Coordination Center.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is expected to remain minimal.
