National Fire Situation Report

Aug 14, 2022 3:16pm, CT
Level 2
Active agencies are unable to independently accomplish incident management objectives without some support. Resource capability remains stable enough nationally to sustain incident operations and meet objectives in active agencies. There is a low probability that drawing down resources from non-active agencies may pose a risk should existing conditions change.
  • Wildland fire activity is increasing in one or more agencies.
  • Resources within most agencies are adequate to manage their current situation, with light to moderate demand and mobilization of resources occurring through CIFFC.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is normal to below normal for the time of year.
Data provided based on information collected from agencies. Accuracy varies based on individual agency practices, but is typically considered to be rough estimates for daily operations. Final quality control is performed post-season and compiled in other publications.
